Broadband Coverage in Europe in 2011 - key results for the Czech Republic

One of the European Union’s most ambitious targets is to make sure that all its citizens can get access to superfast broadband at home, if they choose, by 2020. A new study by broadband specialists Point Topic shows the Czech Republic is now over 40% towards achieving that aim.

The Czech Republic is close to the European average as far as standard broadband and overall HSPA coverage is concerned.  But it is somewhat behind in NGA coverage and has one of the lowest figures for Rural HSPA at 62%.

The technology profile provides the background.  The Czech Republic is at the European average for FTTP, but behind on cable network coverage and even more on VDSL.  The rural profile shows how this translates into below-average fixed-network coverage for everything except WiMAX which does make an important contribution to filling the standard coverage gap in rural areas.
