THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS Office of the Slovak Republic has decided about the amount of compensation for losses in providing universal service for the years 2005 to 2006 for Slovakia’s dominant fixed-line operator, Slovak Telekom (ST).

But the regulator did not approve the full sum requested by ST. The Telecommunications Office adjusted a part of the costs and did not include some services among those whose net costs should be compensated, the SITA newswire wrote.

ST spokesperson Jana Burdová stated that the company is analysing the decision.

ST demanded compensation of €37.51 million for 2005 for losses related to provision of universal service but the regulator acknowledged only €15.67 million. For 2006 ST requested €41.29 million and the Telecommunication Office approved €10.61 million.
