Orange plans to enter ICT market

ORANGE Slovensko, one of the two biggest mobile operators in Slovakia, plans to enter the market for information and telecommunications technologies (ICT) this year.

ORANGE Slovensko, one of the two biggest mobile operators in Slovakia, plans to enter the market for information and telecommunications technologies (ICT) this year.

The company’s deputy chief executive officer, Ivan Golian, said that the company would start offering basic ICT services through its data centre, the SITA newswire wrote.

Golian said the sector opened the possibility of new sources of income. He added, however, that Orange Slovensko is not yet planning any acquisitions in Slovakia.

Chief executive Pavol Lančarič said he also sees space for further growth in the market for fixed internet access, where the company has been offering DSL internet services since the start of this year, using fixed lines owned by Slovak Telekom.

“We still see big space in data [services] in general,” Lančarič stressed. The market for entertainment is also of interest, said Orange, including access to music via mobile and fixed internet, and various auxiliary and TV services.
