Office approves telecom terms

SLOVAKIA's market regulating Telecoms Office (TÚ) has approved new general terms for providing public fixed-line telephone service by dominant operator Slovak Telecom (ST), whose fixed-line monopoly ends at the beginning of 2003.

According to the terms announced by the TŮ, users are entitled to select alternate telecoms providers either through pre-selection or on a call-by-call basis.

However, the possibility of carrier selection will be open only to customers of ST's standard programmes. Those signed up for optional ST packages will not be able to select a different carrier.
