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.
Standard broadband coverage in the Czech Republic ranges down from 100% in the capital Prague to about 86% in the most rural regions. The regions around Prague and in the north-west all have over 95% coverage as do those in the south and east around Brno and Ostrava.
NGA coverage is also highest in Prague, at 83%. The regions around Prague and in the west of the Republic, and around Ostrava in the east, all have over 35% coverage. The remainder range down as low as 12%.
