The growth in income was the result of network expansion by telecommunications operators, and the sector’s general development, said TÚ spokesperson Roman Vavro.

Administration of the frequency spectrum made up the biggest share of TÚ’s revenues, at Sk435.4 million, while revenues from fixed and satellite services accounted for Sk253 million.

Revenues from operators’ use of telephone numbers amounted to Sk6.8 million last year.

Administrative fees paid by a total of 891 operators providing electronic communication networks and services contributed a further Sk49.2 million to the state budget.
