UPC Slovakia introduces internet for seniors

Liberty Global-owned cable operator UPC Slovakia has introduced an ‘internet for seniors’ offering, providing uncapped data at speeds of up to 10Mbps for €5 a month.

The offering is targeted at subscribers over the age of 62. UPC Slovakia is providing two packages, Senior Start, with speeds of up to 10Mbps and a WiFi modem available for an additional €0.90 a month, and Senior Comfort, which includes 120 minutes of phone calls to mobile and fixed networks in Slovakia and other EU countries, for €9.90.

The packages include a discounted price for activation of €1, with an installation technician available for €5.

UPC Slovakia CEO Martin Miller said that only a third of Slovakian seniors currently use the internet, less than the European average. This offering, he said, is designed to encourage them to get online.
