ST unveils ten-year plan for DSL-to-fibre migration

3 Feb 2021

Slovak Telekom (ST) has announced the first twelve markets where it is switching all customers to fibre connections and shutting down its copper infrastructure. DSL customers in the twelve villages and towns are being offered a free migration to a fibre connection as long as they stay on the same or a higher broadband tariff. ST says its fibre-optic broadband services are already available to 750,000 households across the country, but it will be working to expand access to all areas currently covered by DSL over the next ten years. ST had 598,000 fixed broadband subscribers at the end of September 2020, according to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database.
