PRESS RELEASE: Monthly Monitoring Report No. 07/2020

Prague, 20 July 2020 – The July monthly monitoring report, which was published today, informs about BEREC preparations for deployment of 5G and checking the quality of connection control according to EU Regulation on open Internet access. We have also published summary report on fulfilment of obligations imposed on Czech Post for 2019 and received comments on 5G auction.

In the previous period, CTU focused on checking the quality of Internet connection. In compliance with the EU Regulation, the providers have incorporated the required information into their contracts and do not use manifestly prohibited practices. However, CTU found that the end-user is still not always transparently informed about the quality of the connection. Therefore, CTU suggests setting the quality of service parameters and deviations from the actual performance so that the providers can no longer "entice" end-users to unrealistic connection quality.

CTU published a summary Report on fulfilment of obligations imposed on postal licence holder, Česká pošta, s.p. for the year 2019. The report shows that some of Czech Post’s errors in fulfilling its universal service obligations persisted also in 2019. CTU will therefore continue to supervise Czech Post’s activities in the coming period, checking its obligations, in particular in areas criticized by the public.

In the 3rd public consultation on the draft conditions of the tender for 700 MHz and 3400–3600 MHz frequencies, CTU Office received and published a total of 267 comments from 27 entities. CTU is now assessing all the comments submitted and, based on these comments, it will propose potential adjustments to the conditions of the tender. The results will be published by 7 August 2020.

The monitoring report is available here.
