Our first, extremely important step towards providing excellent, reliable, and cutting-edge services was a complete overhaul of our radio and core network. After four years of extensive work and €48 million in investments, we completed this project in 2014. Today we offer our customers state of the art mobile network technology in a responsive network with huge capacities and coverage.
From the Management Board Address
According to the data from the Agency for Communication Networks and Services of the Republic of Slovenia (AKOS), the penetration of mobile communications in Slovenia has reached 112.6% in the third quarter of 2014. The high level of penetration is an indicator of future slow growth of the telecommunications market. This also sends clear signals that any future major share growth is only possible through acquisitions and market consolidation.
From the Chapter Telecommunications Market
Our years of hard work are now evident in the state of the art network, which can rank next to any from developed countries. We have increased the reliability and the capacity of our network and upgraded it with the modern technologies of the latest 4th generation mobile networks, LTE and LTE-Advanced, thereby meeting the expectations of our users for growing amounts of data transfer with increasing speeds.
From the Chapter Network
We operate in a fast-changing industry, where changes are the only constant. Under such circumstances our colleagues are the ones who must be the first to understand why we need these changes, and be able to see in them an opportunity for progress, for improvement and for new recommendations. If we wish to create the all-important competitive advantage compared to other companies in the industry, we must be excellent at what we do. And excellence comes from colleagues. We cannot achieve it without the right general know-how and expertise, without the experience and skills of our employees.
From the Chapter Responsibility
In 2014, our total operating revenue increased by 0.6% compared to 2013. We recorded a high, 80% increase in revenue from the sale of goods, which is the result of changes to the sales model for goods, namely offering our customers the option of paying in installments. The trend of declining revenue from the sale of basic telecommunications services, as well as the revenue from domestic network interconnection and international roaming continues.
From the Chapter Financial report
Since Si.mobil's mission is in making ideas into reality and in supporting young people, we gave a young amazing artist an opportunity for our 2014 Annual Report. The artist behind this year's colorful artwork is the young Slovenian sculptor, painter, and graphic artist Nina Koželj.
Besides purchasing the artwork, we also made it possible for Nina Koželj to attend additional training at the renowned Frans Masereel Centrum in Belgium.
