Ownership

It is majority owned (51 percent) by Germany's Deutsche Telekom. The remaining share is owned by Slovakia's Ministry of Transport, Posts and Telecommunications, which owns 34 percent, and the National Property Fund of the Slovak Republic, which owns 15 percent. On July 1, 2010 Slovak Telekom officially merged with the mobile provider T-Mobile.

Slovak Telekom sale on horizon

The Slovak government has made another step toward the sale of a minority stake in Slovak Telekom. In April it approved an amendment to the privatisation act extending the means for the sale of state assets to include the stock exchange.[2] It remains to be seen whether the state will sell the full 49-percent stake via the stock exchange or only part of it. However, if the government divides the package, this may influence the final price.

Nationwide 4G/LTE network launched

Slovak Telekom has launched a 4G LTE network originally in five cities in Slovakia as the first Slovak operator in 2013[3] The network operates at 1800 MHz and offers a maximum theoretical speed of 73Mbit/s download and 23Mbit/s upload. Circuit-switched fallback (CSFB) ensures that voice calls and text messages are delivered to LTE devices through the use of a 2G/3G circuit-switched network.
