Nay to go mobile

NAY, a leading white and brown goods retailer in Slovakia is pondering an entry into the Slovak mobile market. According to Peter Zálešák, chairman of Nay’s board of directors, the company plans to operate as a mobile virtual operator by offering telecommunications services under its own trademark using the network of existing operators, the Trend weekly wrote in late February.

NAY, a leading white and brown goods retailer in Slovakia is pondering an entry into the Slovak mobile market. According to Peter Zálešák, chairman of Nay’s board of directors, the company plans to operate as a mobile virtual operator by offering telecommunications services under its own trademark using the network of existing operators, the Trend weekly wrote in late February.

“Under our trademark, we will sell not only mobiles and hardware, but the service itself too,” Zálešák told Trend. He refused to provide any more details. Becoming a mobile virtual network operator is among the investments which Nay wants to trigger this year.

In contrast to most other EU countries, Slovakia does not have a mobile virtual operator. There were some rumours that GTS telecom company and cable operator UPC considered establishing themselves as virtual operators. The Penta company, which has entered the telecommunications sector in Poland and the Czech Republic, was also regarded as a company which might potentially run a mobile virtual network, the weekly wrote.

“For the time being we are pondering various alternatives within this project,” Martin Danko, PR manager of Penta Investments, told the SITA newswire. “Since we have not adopted a final decision yet, we will not provide any detailed information about our plans for the Mobilking project.”
