Czech Republic : Key Statistics, Telecom Market and Regulatory Overviews

The Czech Republic has a small but sophisticated telecom market, with a number of alternative operators offering fixed-line services. Competition is growing in all sectors, with alternative operators gaining size and strength through organic growth, and merger and acquisition activity.

The fixed-line incumbent, now privatised and owned by an investment firm, is facing the increasingly challenging task of stabilising revenue as fixed-line traffic continues to migrate to mobile operators and competing fixed-line operators. Covering developments in the market and regulatory environment, this report gives an insight into the evolving Czech fixed-line telecoms and IT markets, offering valuable statistics, profiles of the major operators and infrastructure deployed.

Key developments:

O2 Czech becomes part of the investment group PPF; banking group acquires 6% of O2 Czech from smaller investors; VOLNY transfers DSL subscribers to O2 and sues for CZK4 billion; stagnant economy since 2008 affecting consumer spend on telecom services; government's ICT strategy developing cost savings; Dial Telecom quadruples international capacity; regulator's 2013 annual report and market updates; telcos' operating and financial data to Q2 2014; market developments into 2014.
