Poland - Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

Poland’s liberalised telecom market has seen considerable development in the broadband and mobile sectors. The incumbent telco, Orange Poland, dominates the broadband market and has invested in fibre infrastructure to support the growing adoption of bundled services among customers.

The regulatory environment has been shaped by EU principles designed to facilitate competition, allowing competing operators to enter the market. This extended to opening Orange Poland’s fibre network to access and pricing regulation, while in May 2019 the regulator also instituted new rules governing wholesale access to cable networks.

This report covers key aspects of Poland’s developing telecom market, presenting data and analyses on market operators, fixed-line networks and technologies, and the key regulatory developments.

Key developments:

  • Government creates Ministry of Administration and Digitalisation to oversee telecom sector development;
  • Telecommunications Act amended;
  • Orange Poland revenue decline prompts outsourcing and disposal strategy;
  • Time taken for number portings reduced to one day;
  • Regulator enforces EC’s access and price ruling on Orange Poland’s fibre network;
  • Report update includes the regulator’s market data report for 2017, State Statistics data for 2017, telcos’ operating and financial data for Q1 2019, recent market developments.
