Poland - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

Poland’s fixed broadband market has benefited from excellent cross-platform competition, with comprehensive DSL infrastructure complemented by extensive cable networks and a growing fibre presence. Commercial considerations meant that fibre was for some years restricted to a number of urban areas, though more recently the sector has received considerable financial support from the government and the European Union. This support is aimed at building fibre-based networks across the country (particularly in eastern areas) and promoting fibre connectivity to end-users. As a result, the proportion of broadband subscribers receiving a service of at least 100Mb/s has increased sharply in recent years.

Orange Poland dominates the fixed broadband market although regulatory measures have improved wholesale market access. As a result the incumbent’s market share of the DSL sector has fallen to about 78%, while its overall share (including mobile broadband connections) stans at 32%. Market consolidation was anticipated with the proposed acquisition by Liberty Global of the cable assets of Multimedia Polska, but though this deal was cancelled in early 2018 Vectra late in the year announced plans to merge with Multimedia, subject to regulatory approval.
