Czech Republic - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

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 sector as the key player UPC continues to upgrade its network to provide far faster services than are available with DSL. UPC's parent Liberty Global is investing in DOCSIS3.1 technology, and 1Gb/s services could be available during 2017 or 2018. The migration away from DSL has also been prompted by 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. 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 a forecast for broadband take-up to 2021.
