The decisions have not yet come into effect, and the operators can appeal against the ruling. "An appeal will not mean the termination of operator services, however," said Vavro.

According to Vavro, the office made its decision in line with the EU regulatory framework and did not take into account any statements or "advice" published in the media. Independent MP Igor Matovič claimed recently that the operators will pay a ridiculously low amount to have their licences extended.
