Minister criticises Slovak Telecom

Telecom Minister Jozef Macejko criticised the monopoly Slovak Telecom (ST) for increasing fees for internet use especially as the trend in the European Union countries was lowering the fees. The minister wrote a letter to ST head Jozef Mikuš in which he also said that expensive internet was in conflict with the country's EU accession process.
