Slovakia’s telecoms regulator, the Telecommunications Office (TÚ), decided on Tuesday, August 9, to extend by ten years the operating licences of the country‘s two biggest mobile operators. On Wednesday, the TÚ also published the amounts the two must pay for the licence extensions.

“Orange Slovensko will pay a one-off sum of €40,686,780, and [T-Mobile parent company] Slovak Telekom a sum of €40,766,930,” TÚ spokesman Roman Vavro said, as quoted by the TASR newswire. The unit cost for 1 MHz of frequency bandwidth is the same for both operators, €800,921, Vavro said.

TÚ said it based its calculations on data provided by the operators, and used the ARPU index which measures average proceeds per customer. The decisions are not yet effective and operators can appeal them, but an appeal will not mean that an operator will stop offering services, Vavro concluded.
