TÚ inspectors reveal shortcomings

An inspection conducted by the Slovak Telecommunications Office (TÚ) found fifty-two deficiencies in how telecommunications services are being provided to the public.

According to the regulator’s spokesperson, Roman Vavro, the most critical problems exist among local service providers, especially those providing Internet access.

"The regulator will inform the operators about the deficiencies and set a deadline for them to be fixed," Vavro said.

The deficiencies include three local Internet companies that provided networks and services without meeting the announcement duty; eight operators that did not submit their profit and loss statements, which the TÚ uses to assess administrative payments; sixteen operators that did not deliver the technical specifications of offered public network bands for publishing; eight operators that did not submit all of the required information for their services; five that showed inadequate service tariffs; and twelve that failed to inform the regulator in advance that it would introduce a RLAN radio device.

The TÚ has been conducting the inspections since mid-May. SITA
