This is an update on the Slovakian telecoms market, covering mobile, fixed broadband, operator initiatives, M&A, and regulation. It includes subscription, revenue, and technology forecasts for mobile and fixed broadband.


  • The mobile penetration rate in Slovakia will reach 155% by 2022, with LTE making up 111% of this figure. This growth will be driven by 4G broadband for home offers. In terms of cellular subscriber net additions, 4ka retains the number one position.
  • The national regulator has set a direction for refarming and planned upcoming spectrum auction to support 5G development. As such, Slovakia is one of the few Eastern European countries to set 5G spectrum auction plans and tests.
  • Fixed broadband household penetration is forecasted to reach 94% in 2022. This will be driven by private investments made by telcos. These investments will also support coverage in rural areas.
