4ka still discussing new roaming deal with Orange

13 Dec 2022

Slovak mobile operator SWAN, which trades under the 4ka brand, is still negotiating a new roaming agreement with Orange even though the existing arrangement runs out at the end of this year. A report from says that 4ka customers are being guaranteed that they will not lose 2G and 3G connectivity via the Orange network even if the new deal is not signed by year-end.

According to the report, the negotiations are being held up because 4ka now wants access to the Orange 4G network, while Orange had not expected this to take place until 2025. 4ka, which launched in 2015, has rolled out its own 4G infrastructure to around 85% of the country and currently uses the Orange 2G and 3G networks to connect calls in other areas.
