Broadband Internet penetration in the Slovak Republic reached 17.24 percent as of January 1, 2008, according to data reported by the Telecommunications Office to the European Commission (EC).

This covers all technologies at a minimum speed of 144 kbit/s. This speed is referred to as the minimum for a comparison with penetration of broadband Internet access in the EU states.
