Slovakia’s largest mobile network operator by subscribers, Orange Slovensko, yesterday announced the commercial launch of triple-play fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband internet, digital TV and fixed line voice telephony services. Orange’s ‘Fibernet’ broadband connections are available in selected areas with three tariff options: ‘Start’ (12Mbps/1Mbps upload/download for SKK600 [USD24] per month); Klasik (30Mbps/2Mbps, SKK720); and Premium (60Mbps/4Mbps, SKK1,190). Digital TV packages start at SKK360 per month, whilst monthly fixed line rental is priced at SKK480, including 100 inclusive call minutes. Orange has earmarked investment of SKK1 billion (USD40 million) this year to roll out a FTTH broadband network covering around 200,000 households in ten cities. It piloted triple-play services to around 15,000 residential users in the first half of this year.
