Mobile contract prices to fall further by Christmas

Expectations that the arrival of Telefonica O2 would cause a drop in prices on Slovakia’s mobile market have only partly come true, the Pravda daily wrote on November 7.

Although Orange and T-Mobile recently decreased the prices of their contracts, it was just a moderate step compared to their Christmas 2006 offers.

Experts say more movement could come after the biggest two companies react to special offers announced by Telefonica O2.

The third mobile operator, which has gained almost 500,000 clients in Slovakia since February, announced on Tuesday it will cut prices of its existing contracts by 25 to 50 percent. Telefonica O2 said it will charge Sk1 for one month of its classic 70-minute contract and Sk420 for the second month, meaning clients will pay Sk211 per month on average.
