Do you know what a boiler has to do with frozen trolleys and antennas?

Do you know that a heating boiler can interfere with radio and television reception? Can frozen trolleys make it difficult to listen to your favorite shows? In relation to the winter season and freezing weather, the Telecommunications Union of the Slovak Republic draws attention to interesting problems with the use of telecommunications services and interference with radio and television reception.

The weather during Christmas tested the preparedness of the operators

During the Christmas holidays, the Telecommunications Union of the Slovak Republic noted a deterioration in the availability of telecommunications services, which was caused by heavy snowfall, wind and power outages. The weather tested the preparedness of the technicians of the distribution companies and telecommunications operators. In some cases, the cause of the reported "outage" was only a snowy antenna at the service user.

Do you know that regional operators also have interesting Christmas offers?

Before the Christmas holidays, many customers of telecommunications operators have reached the end of their commitment and are considering which operator they will use services from in the following period. TÚSR has selected several offers from domestic operators that illustrate the possibilities in selected locations of the Slovak Republic.

Is there a threat of further price increases for telecommunication services in the EU?

The European Commission is currently dealing with the possibility of deregulation or a significant narrowing of the regulation of the electronic communications sector. As a result, operators with significant market power could dictate pricing and technical terms that would further distort competition, crowd out competition from the market, and ultimately demand disproportionately high prices from end users.

What will happen next with the distribution of Czech TV programs?

Currently, in Slovakia, we are dealing with the issue of the further distribution of Czech television programs. What will come next? Will we eliminate Hungarian, Austrian or Polish programs as well? The distribution and offering of foreign television programs is a professional topic that can easily turn into a political one, and according to the Telecommunications Union of the Slovak Republic (TÚSR), all those affected should sit down at a round table without unnecessary emotions and explain their positions.
