The Czech Republic has a sophisticated telecom market which over the years has attracted investment from a number of major European telcos. The incumbent telco O2 Czech Republic remains the dominant player though alternative operators are gaining market share, partly through organic growth and partly though merger and acquisition activity. The company has secured marginal revenue growth in recent years despite the gradual customer migration from fixed-line to mobile networks for voice and data services. The company has transitioned itself to face these market challenges, having split into separate divisions and created the CETIN unit to manage the fixed and mobile networks while also operating as a wholesale network provider.
The mobile market is showing steady growth though there remain concerns that the market is insufficiently competitive. The government in 2017 amended the Telecommunications Act to improve pricing for end-users which market competition could improve from 2019 if the regulator succeeds in attracting a new market player when it auctions 5G-suitable spectrum.
All MNOs telcos have focused on growing revenue by marketing mobile broadband and other value-added services such as mobile content and applications. To this end they have invested in LTE infrastructure and technologies, while T-Mobile and O2 in particular are active in developing services and applications based on 5G.
Covering developments in the market and regulatory environment, this report provides insights into the evolving fixed-line telecoms and IT markets of the Czech Republic, offering statistics, profiles of the major operators and an assessment of infrastructure deployed. The report also covers the mobile market, providing an overview of the MNOs as well as developments in technologies and regulatory affairs. A range of market and company statistics provide an insight into the state of both the mobile voice and data markets, as well as the performance and strategies of the key network players. In addition the report reviews the fixed and fixed-wireless broadband sectors, profiling the key players, assessing access platforms and market trends, and providing broadband subscriber forecasts.
