Fixed telecommunications services


Fixed telecommunications services

National and international outgoing traffic from the fixed network decreased over last decade. The same situation has been recorded with number of classical telephone connections, while the number of IP telephony connections is constantly increasing.

Telekom Slovenije is the largest provider of IP telephony services in Slovenia (approx. 38% market share), however there are other important players on the market of IP telephony, such as Telemach (32%), T-2 (15.9%) and A1 Slovenija (9 %). 

The price level of its services does not significantly differ from that of EU countries. The prices of national calls are low compared to the EU average and due to the existence of competition prices of international calls are very low as well.

The NGA - Next Generation Access (FTTH, FTTB, VDSL, Docsis 3.0 and other NGA) coverage in Slovenia (60%) is one of the highest among the EU member states (48%). The coverage in rural areas is also very high, namely 60% of the territory.
