THE DOMINANT fixed-line voice-service provider, Slovak Telecom (ST), signed a deal with the company ConnSpec Telekom allowing the alternative operator to hook up with its network.
However, ConnSpec, which had already applied for interconnection in January, will be securing phone connections mostly to North and South America.
ST President Miroslav Majoroš was positive about the signature of the first interconnection contract, considering it evidence of the willingness of ST to reach an agreement with alternative operators.
Critics have long accused ST of deliberately holding up the liberalisation process in order to consolidate its market dominance.
