Growth in the Czech Republic’s fixed-line broadband market has slowed in line with higher penetration. The sector has more recently seen stronger growth in the cable and fibre sectors. The key player UPC has steadily upgraded its network to provide faster services based on DOCSIS3.1 technology. The company in May 2018 announced the sale of its businesses in several Central and eastern European markets to Vodafone Group, which will strengthen the latter’s ability to offer converged services. The sale was completed in July 2019.
The migration away from DSL has largely been due to the expansion of fibre networks, which are being built out by a number of telcos. Fixed wireless broadband remains strong, with penetration among the highest in the EU. Indeed O2 Czech Republic expected that about half of its broadband customers would be on fixed wireless by 2020.
Widespread broadband access has laid the foundation for a developing internet society, with a range of online services and activities taking place.
This report provides an overview of the country’s fixed broadband market, profiling the key players, assessing access platforms and market trends and delivering a variety of insightful statistics as well as broadband subscriber forecasts.
