Slovak Telecom must separate Internet from fixed line services

SLOVAK Telecom (ST), the dominant fixed line provider in Slovakia, must divide the broadband Internet service from fixed-line voice services, the Pravda daily reported.

Currently, customers who want to use ST's broadband service pay at least the minimum Sk300 (€7.6) per month flat fee for voice telephone services.

This will no longer be possible as the Slovak telecom authority TÚ ordered that ST must separate the two services and can no longer demand that customers have a fixed line if all they want is an Internet connection.

"The binding of the two services must end as of January 1, 2006," said TÚ spokesman Roman Vavro.
