Large telecom operators fined

THE THREE largest telecommunication firms in Slovakia - Slovak Telecom, Orange Slovensko, and T-Mobile – face fines for failing to enable customers who want to change operators to keep their telephone numbers, the daily Pravda reported.

Telephone numbers can be transferred, according to the law. The operators should have enabled the transferability of numbers by May 2004, when Slovakia joined the EU.

The operators say, however, that they need more time to prepare for the changes.
According to Orange Slovensko and T-Mobile, they need until July of this year.

On the other hand, Slovak Telecom says it is ready for the change, but it is waiting for the rest of the market.

Apart from the three biggest telecom players, six smaller telecom operators also face the threat of the fine, which can reach up to Sk3 million (€80,000).
