Czech Republic Telecom Sector Underwent Radical Changes in Recent Years, According to BuddeComm Report Available at MarketPublishers.com29 Nov 2016 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – The Czech Republic’s telecom industry has gone through radical changes over the last couple of years.
The national media market is developing under the influence of digital television and convergence trends, with more than 50% of the population currently receiving TV services digitally. The use of video streaming services is on the rise due to more affordable broadband access, whilst the cable TV sector has seen significant consolidation to create a key player sizeable enough to enter into rivalry with the incumbent.
The fixed-line broadband market growth slackened along with higher penetration. Over recent years, the market has witnessed healthier growth in the cable sector, as the dominant player UPC CR keeps on upgrading its network to offer much faster and reliable data services as against currently available DSL. The company promotes 300Mb/s data speeds to support bundled services. Meantime, the company’s parent Liberty Global is pouring money into DOCSIS3.1 technology and commercial 1Gb/s services are likely to be available in the upcoming one or two years. The shift away from DSL has also been instigated by the expansion of fibre networks. Fixed wireless broadband (FWB) remains strong, with penetration rate being amongst the highest in the EU. Extensive broadband availability has given a rise to the constantly evolving internet society, with a variety of online services and engagements taking place.
UPC CR, GTS Czech, O2 Czech Republic, T-Mobile Czech Republic, MobilKom, BT, ED-Telematika, CRa, Vodafone Czech Republic, Nej TV, and RIO Media, amid others, are the leading companies operating in the marketplace.
