Slovenia is set to get its third mobile operator, as Tusmobil, owned by retail magnate Mirko Tus, gears up to launch its services. The company signed on Tuesday, 15 May a deal with Slovenia's largest mobile operator, Mobitel, on national roaming until it builds its network.
Under the deal, Tusmobil users will be able to use Mobitel's network in areas that are not yet covered by Tusmobil's base stations.
'This deal is an important step forward in the launch of a third mobile operator in Slovenia,' Mobitel general manager Klavdij Godnic said in a press release circulated by Mobitel's parent, Telekom Slovenije, on Tuesday, 15 May.
Meanwhile, daily Dnevnik reports on Wednesday, 16 May that Tusmobil is set to launch commercial services in about two months' time. "
