Third mobile operator tender to be discussed soon

Deputy Telecom Minister Dušan Faktor said July 30 that choosing a third mobile operator for the Slovak market remains a priority, with the government due to discuss tender conditions this September and a new entry on the market possible by summer next year.

A tender for a third operator to join Eurotel, majority-controlled by fixed-line monopoly Slovenské Telekomunikácie (ST), and France Telecom-owned Globtel, was controversially cancelled in summer 1999 by then Telecoms Minister Gabriel Palacka. Palacka split the licence between Eurotel and Globtel. He was forced to resign over the affair a few months later.
