Slovaks pay €38 for telecom services

SLOVAKS pay, on average, €38 to telecommunication operators per month. This is a conclusion of a survey Sberbank Slovensko conducted on its more than 10,000 clients who regularly pay monthly invoices to telecommunications operators for calls, internet or TV.

SLOVAKS pay, on average, €38 to telecommunication operators per month. This is a conclusion of a survey Sberbank Slovensko conducted on its more than 10,000 clients who regularly pay monthly invoices to telecommunications operators for calls, internet or TV.

“This sum [€38] has not changed significantly over the last year and a half, even though the usage of smart phones, and thus the transfer of data via mobile devices, is growing,” Filip Vítek, the head of the customer value management department at Sberbank Slovensko said, as cited in the bank’s press release. “People pay moderately higher sums for December – Christmas – calls within the January invoice.”

Contrary to this, average payments to operators remain the same during the summer. This means that people do not put their mobiles aside during holidays and use them as frequently as during other months.

The survey also showed that 10 percent of the most active users pay monthly invoices 2.6-times higher than average users, i.e. about €100. In this respect, Vítek added that such users usually pay to more operators maybe because they pay separately for mobile and TV, or pay for two mobiles for themselves or somebody else.

The statistics have shown that women pay, on average, €3 less on invoices than men. While an average a man pays €40, the average woman’s payment is €37. According to Vítek, this does not uproot the myth that women spend more time on mobiles, estimating that men may be responsible for paying internet or TV fees in households.
