Slovak Telekom changes fixed-line strategy

SLOVAKIA's dominant fixed-line operator, Slovak Telekom, has announced radical changes to its strategy in the fixed line sector to focus on telecom products and services based on the Internet Protocol (IP) technology, broadband access to the internet and internet content.

The development reflects falling demand for fixed-line voice services and growth in the share of mobile voice services in Slovakia over the past five years. ST now sees the future of fixed-line services in broadband, new voice and data services based on IP technologies, and internet content development, said ST product marketing director Joerg Zeddies at a press conference.

In line with its change in strategy ST will introduce a line of products and services called "Triple-Play" to the market in the first half of this year, including high-speed internet, voice-over-internet and digital television, the SITA news agency wrote.

Within Triple Play ST will launch the test operation of a digital TV service in July, hoping to launch the digital TV in October.
