Slovakia: LTE Service Take-Up, Broadband Rollout and Multiplay Services Will Support Revenue Growth

Summary In 2016, telecom service revenue in Slovakia will slightly decline compared with 2015, to $1.5bn (€1.4bn), equivalent to 1.8% of the country’s nominal GDP.

Argentina: New Regulatory Framework and Recent MandA Activity Will Boost Competition in Telecom and Media Markets

Summary The arrival of Mauricio Macri in November 2014 to the Argentinean presidency brings a more optimistic investment environment for the country in general and the telecom sector in particular.
