SLOVAK mobile operators reported more than 6 million active clients at the end of 2007. Penetration of mobile phone services in Slovakia increased by almost 17 percentage points year-on-year to 113.44 percent over last year, the SITA newswire wrote.

As of December 31, the three Slovak mobile operators, Orange Slovensko, T-Mobile Slovensko and Telefónica O2 Slovakia, registered 6.126 million clients altogether. This was an increase of approximately 917,000 customers year-on-year.

The data made available by the operators include the total number of clients, including SIM cards used in technological appliances, GSM gateway operation, mobile internet services, telemetry and others. It is not possible, however, to report a total number of mobile operator clients on an individual basis.

When calculated according to a unified methodology that mobile operators in Slovakia use, Orange Slovensko had 3.194 million customers at the end of the year, up 6.1 percent year-on-year. T-Mobile Slovensko recorded 2.367 million customers, up 7.6 percent year-on-year. Telefónica O2, which has been operating in the mobile telecommunication market since last February, reported 565,000 customers.
