Five new telecoms companies to provide services

Five alternative telecoms companies are about about to start operations in Slovakia, according to the Telecommunications Office (TÚ).

The companies - Dial Telecom, eTel, PosTel, GlobalTel, and US Steel - will link their networks to the mobile operator Orange. Not a single alternative operator has so far managed to sign an agreement to link up to the existing land-based network, run by the former state monopoly Slovak Telecom, now owned by Deutsche Telekom.

"We are glad that this has been achieved despite inadequate legislation for the opening of the market," TÚ deputy director Juraj Michňa told the daily Pravda.
