Slovenia lacks telecoms network investment

The Slovenian electronic communications sector has lost much of its steam between 2008 and 2011. The sector's investment, driven by infrastructure competition and fibre deployment, peaked in 2008 at EUR 401 million, accounting to 32,6% of the sector's revenue (Figure 1). The investment then fell to EUR 120 million in 2011, representing only 9,8% of the sector's revenue, which placed Slovenia in the last position among the EU Member States (Figure 2). Investment in the electronic communications sector recovered to EUR 173 million in 2012, reaching a level of 14,3% of the sector's revenue.
