FWA services launched

Telenor Telecom has launched Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) telecom services in Bratislava; Telenor says the service will be 15-30% cheaper than that offered by the monopoly provider Slovenské telekomunikácie (ST).

The technology, which has long been available in neighbouring states such as the Czech Republic, cuts out the so-called 'last mile' of physical phone cable connection to houses from a central relay point in cities currently dominated by ST.

Telenor representatives said when launching the service that there had already been large interest in FWA. "We want to expand the service to include every major Slovak city," said Telenor Telecom general manager Kim Erik Schliekelmann October 29.

He added the price of the service was as much as 15-30% lower than existing offers on the market.
