Four firms get fixed line licenses

The Telecom Office has issued four licenses to firms wanting to offer fixed-line services as early as January 2003, part of a planned move to liberalise the country’s telecom market, which is now controlled by monopoly provider Slovak Telecom.

However, because parliament rejected a law forcing Slovak Telecom to rent its lines to competitors, one of the basic requirements for market liberalisation, it is uncertain whether introducing new competitors to the market will in fact produce any competition.
