TELEPHONE landline operator Slovak Telekom (ST) cancelled its telegram-services contract with the state-owned Slovenská Pošta (Slovak Post Office), officially putting an end to telegram service in Slovakia.

“Slovak Telekom has monitored the efficiency of the telegram service, and based on a steady fall in demand for telegram deliveries, discontinued this service as of January 1, 2007,” said ST spokesman Jana Burdová, as quoted by the Hospodárske Noviny.

This service had long been unprofitable for ST, bringing the company an annual net loss of tens of millions of crowns for several years in a row.

ST has also cancelled Call Collect and international telegram services.
