High-speed connection and coverage of white spots on the map of the Czech Republic is currently one of the priority topics of the Ministry of Industry and Trade. The aim of the High-Speed Internet program from the Enterprise and Innovation for Competitiveness Operational Programme is to improve the quality of life and support economic development and employment in remote or sparsely populated rural areas. The subject of the provided grant is the deployment of a modern, high-quality and secure infrastructure enabling high-speed internet access (next generation access networks) to those locations where this access is not provided and is not likely to be provided by market mechanisms on a commercial basis.

We will expand optical network to sparsely populated areas thanks to aid from the EU

We responded to the call made by the Ministry of Industry and Trade to support high-speed internet and made a commitment to expand our optical network to 155 basic units of settlement in the so-called ‘white spots’. The costs of implementing more than 8,000 FTTH and FTTC connections will be partially covered by a grant from the European Structural Funds amounting to approximately 212 million, and an additional approximately 80 million will be invested by CETIN. As a result, households in these rural areas will receive a high-quality internet connection that is entirely comparable to what operators provide in large cities on a commercial basis.

All connections built in this manner meet the so-called higher NGA standard (Next Generation Access), i.e., speeds of at least 100/33 Mb/s.

We are building, operating and accelerating the largest data and communication network in the Czech Republic and plan, among other things, to connect 1,000,000 households via the FTTH optical network in the next seven years. The ministry’s program therefore complements our current activities and will allow us to build modern access networks even in places that are not profitable for commercial development.

The following projects receive financial aid from the European Union under the Enterprise and Innovation for Competitiveness Operational Programme - 2nd call: High-speed Internet.
