In 2014, we took part in a public auction for assigning radio frequencies for the provision of public communication services, acquiring parts of the spectrum with special coverage requirements. As a result, we have committed to providing coverage to 95 % of the residents of the Republic of Slovenia with the latest LTE broadband technology within 3 years.
Si.mobil's LTE in Slovenia
By the end of 2014, Si.mobil will cover 75 % of the population with state-of-the-art LTE technology, including all Slovenian towns and cities. However, this is just the start of a period of extensive investment in the development of infrastructure and the provision of cutting-edge services.
By mid-2017 at the latest, broadband mobile services with a speed of at least 10 Mbps will be available to at least 95 % of the Slovenian population. Along with that, Si.mobil will bring broadband mobile internet to at least 225 settlements or groups of settlements in rural areas, which are currently white spots without any broadband coverage.
Users connected to broadband internet experience very fast response times, websites open immediately, they can stream multimedia content without interruptions (for example download audio and video files), or watch live video content and listen to online radio. But above all, users have a fast connection to the world, and very fast access to all the required information.
