4Mbps broadband now part of Slovenia’s universal service requirement

19 Apr 2018

Slovenia’s telecoms regulator, the Agency for Communications Networks & Services (Agencija za komunikacijska omrezja in storitve, AKOS), says broadband internet access will now be included under the country’s universal service regime. The watchdog says the universal service obligation (USO) now covers both voice telephony and internet access at speeds of 4Mbps or greater. The service has been designated technology neutral, meaning any combination of fixed and/or wireless systems can be used to provide connectivity. Telekom Slovenije was named as the country’s universal service provider in 2009, with its designation renewed in 2014 and 2017.
