Swan blames operators for delay in national coverage

Thursday 18 December 2014 | 11:05 CET | News
Slovak operator Swan now covers parts of Bratislava, Trnava, Zilina, Banska Bystrica, Kosice Nitra, Presov, Banovce nad Bebravou, Dunajska Streda, Hlohovec, Pezinok and certain other cities with its LTE network, reports Zive.sk. The operator made the announcement to other mobile operators with whom it has been negotiating on national roaming for some time without success, as well as to regulator RU. This coverage extent means the fourth mobile operator has met the condition for other mobile operators to be obliged to provide Swan with national roaming.
