Net profit of Slovak Telekom group up 0.7 percent y-y

THE SLOVAK Telekom (ST) group, which includes the fixed-line operator ST and mobile operator T-Mobile, earned a net profit of Sk1.8 billion, which is up 0.7 percent year-on-year, largely thanks to T-Mobile, the Pravda daily wrote.

The fixed-line operator saw a 44 percent decrease in profits, to Sk420 million. For several years now ST has been loosing its fixed-line customers in favor of mobile operators. ST lost 32,000 fixed-line connections in this way over the past year. Currently, the number of fixed-line connections is 1.166 million.

On the other hand, the number of clients is rising among mobile operators. T-Mobile, number two on the Slovak mobile market, had 2.034 million clients at the end of June. Its competitor Orange had 2.52 million customers at the end of last year.
