Slovenia’s regulator and government initiate 5G trials
Slovenia’s fixed-line telecom market remains dominated by Telekom Slovenije. The company has endeavoured to address declining revenue by diversifying its business interests and lessening its reliance pure telecom services. In response to domestic competition the telco has also developed an international presence, focused predominantly on the Balkans region where it is becoming a regional provider of IT and multimedia services.

The broadband market continues to be dominated by a small number of players. Despite the launch of competing platforms, DSL remains the most popular access method though its market share is being eroded by the steady development of fibre-based networks, as well as by upgraded cable networks which offer data rates of up to 220Mb/s. The deployment of DOCSIS3.1 technology expected among cablcos from about 2018 will provide services of at least 1Gb/s, and so enable the operators to improve the delivery of bundled services.

Increased internet usage and activity has characterised an emerging internet society, comprised of e-government, e-commerce and e-health among other services. Digital TV availability is expanding via cable, IPTV, satellite and terrestrial free-to-air platforms, increasing competition and choice for end-users. Slovenia was among the first countries in Europe to switch from analogue to digital terrestrial broadcasting, and so has been able to make use of digital dividend spectrum for mobile broadband services.

The competitive mobile market has four mobile network operators and a small number of mobile virtual network operators. With high mobile penetration, telcos have branched into offering both mobile and fixed-line services so as to offer bundled products. This strategy saw the cableco Telemach acquire Tušmobil and Si.mobil merge with Amis Telekom, with both of the latter being rebranded as A1 Slovenia in April 2017.

The regulator has addressed the need of mobile operators to be provided with more spectrum. In 2013 additional concessions were made available, while a significant multi-spectrum auction was held in 2014. An auction for left-over spectrum in the 1800MHz and 2100MHz bands was held in late 2016, with Telemach securing all three blocks on offer. Another auction for fixed-wireless broadband services using spectrum in the 3.5GHz, 10GHz and 12GHz bands is expected to be held later in 2017, mainly for the provision of fixed-wireless broadband services.
