UPC Slovakia claims victory in dispute with Antik Telecom

Cable operator UPC Slovakia has claimed victory in a regulatory dispute with Košice-based service provider Antik Telecom.

The Slovak telecom regulator has ruled that UPC Slovakia had no obligation under the current law to provide its TV services over Antik Telecom’s network. According to the Liberty Global-owned operator, Antik earlier refused to enter into negotiations over retransmission of TV services on a contractual basis.

Antik Telecom had also been challenged by smaller ISPs and the APKT cable operator association over illegal retransmission and construction of networks.
