Mapping broadband coverage in Slovenia

Broadband Coverage in Europe in 2012 - key results for Slovenia

One of the European Union’s most ambitious targets is to make sure that all its citizens can get access to superfast broadband at home, if they choose, by 2020. A new study by Point Topic shows Slovenia is now over 65% towards achieving that aim.

National coverage by broadband technology

Slovenia has a similar profile to other Eastern European nations. Standard and standard fixed broadband coverage both fell below the European Union averages for coverage. Overall NGA coverage was advanced, with more than 65% of households covered in 2012, but the most rural households were not able to access the high-speed services.

DSL services covered less than 70% of the households in Slovenia in 2012, placing it well below the EU average for coverage. This affects Slovenia’s coverage of both standard and standard fixed broadband services. Since we reported last year, it has been confirmed that there is no WiMAX network in Slovenia, which has further reduced our estimate for standard fixed coverage in Slovenia.

Slovenia is making use of a wider range of technologies than some other countries in its area. VDSL, FTTP and Docsis 3 all made a contribution to the country’s overall NGA coverage in 2012. Over half of the DSL network had been upgraded to VDSL, contributing to the high NGA coverage reported.
LTE services launched in 2012 and by the end of the year covered nearly 13% of households. HSPA coverage was found to be comparable to the EU average.

Regional coverage by broadband technology

The two areas with the highest NGA coverage – Podravska and Osrednjeslovenska – both enjoyed coverage from all three NGA technologies in 2012. In general, the most rural areas had the lowest NGA coverage. The pattern for standard fixed broadband coverage in Slovenia reflects the deployment of DSL services across the country.
