According to a report from the Slovenian Post and Electronic Communications Agency (APEK), former monopoly telco Telekom Slovenije lost four percentage points of broadband internet market share in the first quarter of 2008 compared to the corresponding period last year. APEK said the state-run operator controlled 49.2% of the high speed market in Q1 with its primarily ADSL-based services, whilst fibre-optic network operator T-2’s share reached 16.8%, followed by DSL provider Amis with 8.8%, cableco UPC Telemach (8.3%) and Tus Telekom (3.2%). In other broadband segments, Telekom Slovenije remained the leading provider of voice-over-internet protocol (VoIP) telephony with a 47.9% share of the market, according to APEK, which also reported that VoIP services doubled their overall market share of fixed line telephony services year-on-year to 17.3%. In the country’s IPTV sector, Telekom Slovenije’s market share fell three percentage points in a year to 60.4%, whilst second-ranked T-2 increased its share by just under one percentage point to 36.3%, with Amis and Tus accounting for the remainder.
