Poland - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Poland's fixed broadband market is one of the largest in Europe. It 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.

Orange Poland dominates the fixed broadband market although there is in place a regulatory regime designed to improving wholesale market access. This report profiles Poland's fixed broadband market, including a review of the key market players, statistics and technology platforms, and an assessment of recent market developments. It also includes forecasts to 2021.
