Slovakia[edit]

Slovakia has 6.68million subscribers in total, or a 122.79% penetration rate. All facts are based on the 3-month customer activity base.[98] (December 2018)

In addition to these major mobile network operators, there are 3 MVNOs in Slovakia. The Slovak mobile virtual network operators are Juro, Funfón and Tescomobile SK. These do not own a wireless mobile network infrastructure of their own and use the infrastructure from the country's major mobile network operators who do have mobile infrastructure instead. All of them have many restrictions, for ex. Juro SIMs can not sign in to 4G network, Tescomobile SK has slower 4G internet than his infrastructure provider O2 and all of them can not use VoLTE/ ViLTE/VoWiFi, but they have lower prices than MNOs.

4ka is declared like MVNO, but theoretically it has own infrastructure. It was developed in cooperation with SWAN and Slovenská pošta (Slovak post services). SWAN owns infrastructure and Slovenská pošta sells SIMs.

The Regulatory Authority for electronic communications "telecommunication" in Slovakia is Úrad pre reguláciu elektronických komunikácií a poštových služieb (RÚ)
