ST aims for EU-type service by year 2000

Slovak Telecom (ST) is aiming with its "Telecommunication Project II" to reach a level of quality and quantity comparable to the countries ranked in the bottom third of development in the EU by the year 2000. By then, the density of main phone lines should reach 35 per 1,000 people; currently it reaches 22.8 per 1,000. ST's objective is to shorten the maximum waiting time for a new line to 6 months. Currently the biggest problem is insufficient cable capacity, so ST is planning a project of wireless telephone connection. The project, similar to the GSM system will be established in Bratislava, Banská Bystrica and Košice.
