Czech Republic - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

Growth in the Czech Republic's fixed-line broadband market has slowed in line with higher consumer penetration of services. 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. 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.
