Cesky to cut ADSL wholesale rates from June

16 May 2006

The Czech Republic’s fixed line incumbent Cesky Telecom plans to lower the wholesale prices it charges other operators for its high speed ADSL service from June, according to company spokesman Martin Zabka. The cuts are expected to result in lower prices for end users. On 1 February this year Cesky increased access speeds for internet connections by up to four times, but left the prices for services unchanged. The move sparked a dramatic fall in retail prices in the market and, according to the Czech News Agency, rival operators can now buy an ADSL line for as little as CZK304 (USD14).
