BMI View: Slovakia's broadband sector is witnessing strong growth on the back of investments in next- generation wireless and wireline networks and the demand for multi - play services. This will lead to the outperformance of telecoms service providers offering convergence services in v o lume and value terms. There is little long-term scope for newcomer SWAN to significantly disrupt existing market dynamics.

Latest Updates and Industry Developments

  • Mobile subscriptions increased marginally in 9M15. We forecast 6.891mn subscriptions by end-2015, falling to 7.107mn in 2019. 3G/4G migration will see such subscriptions rise from 4.475mn to 6.902mn.

  • Muted demand for low-capacity wireline broadband will impede broadband market growth, but fibre connections will facilitate uptake of high-value triple- and quad-play services. Subscriptions will reach 2.092mn in 2019, yielding higher average revenue per user (ARPU).
