IT may seem complicated at first, but it is not that difficult to sign up for alternative operator services. Here's what is required.
A customer must first arrange a fixed line through Slovak Telecom and activate any of Slovak Telecom's phone programmes (products). Please note that if you opt for a minimal rate programme (ST Mini), you cannot sign up for an alternative supplier, so keep that in mind. In the event that you do not have access to a fixed line, some alternative operators can arrange to assign you a fixed line through Slovak Telecom.
Most alternative operators do not require their customers to pay a regular service fee but only require payment for calls made. Usually calls are charged by the second.
When choosing an alternative provider, pay attention to price per call, tariffs per second as well as other fees. For example, is there a minimum telephone charge? Your three-second phone call could cost you the minimum 60-second price. Good luck!
