Scope of Telekom Slovenije privatisation uncertain following 2014 elections
Slovenia's telecom market remains dominated by the incumbent operator Telekom Slovenije. The company is majority owned by the state, and although successive governments have expressed a commitment to selling the state's holding in the company, along with a number of assets, the privatisation process may be delayed following the July 2014 elections. Parties which make up the new coalition government are known to oppose the privatisation of the incumbent, though a solution may be to complete the sale of the company's businesses while retaining control of its infrastructure.

In response to competition Telekom Slovenije has followed the path of many European incumbents and expanded internationally, focusing predominantly on the Balkans region and morphing into a regional provider of IT and multimedia services rather than a national telco.
In broadband market DSL has a strong but diminishing share of accesses as customers migrate to upgraded cable networks and to fibre offerings.
The competitive mobile market has four mobile network operators and a small number of MVNOs. With high mobile SIM card penetration, these players have shifted focus to defending market share and to increasing ARPU by encouraging prepaid users to take up postpaid services as well as adopt mobile broadband and data services. HSPA and LTE networks have been deployed to support the delivery of these services, while competing network deployments have led to increased transfer speeds. The multi-spectrum auction held in 2014 will go far in expanding mobile broadband services nationally over the coming three years.

Key developments:

Privatisation of Telekom Slovenije delayed until the newly elected government is formed; contract awarded to build a wireless network for the Slovenian railway system; telecom regulator changes its name to AKOS; Telekom Slovenije's mobile subsidiary merges into parent company; sharp rise in VoIP connections as PSTN declines; telecoms sector investment recovers from economic downturn; National Assembly adopts the Electronic Communications Act; Telekom Slovenije unbundles fibre infrastructure; government funding to extend broadband to 23 municipalities; Telemach acquired by KKR; government broadband program targets extending FttP to 90% of the population by 2020; IPTV provider Amis Telecom put up for sale; Telekom Slovenije launches satellite broadband services; multi-spectrum auction concludes, with significant population coverage obligations on the three licensees; Telekom Slovenije begins deploying LTE using the 800MHz band; MVNO Debitel put up for sale; Si.Mobil expands HSPA+ upgrade to 90% of the population; regulator's 2013 market report and updates to March 2014; operator data to Q2 2014; recent market developments.
