High speed internet for the Czechs up to 2020

About CZK 11.55bn (€425.3m) is available from European Union to cover the costs of ensuring high speed internet in the Czech Republic, according to itbiz.cz. The Ministry of Industry and Trade (MPO) encourages entrepreneurs to apply for funds from the Operational Program Enterprise and Innovation for Competitiveness. The project which aims at providinga high speed internet of at least 30 Mb/s in the country must be implemented by the end of 2020. The Czech government approved the National Plan for the development of internet networks in October 2016, because about 30% of all settlements in the county still do not have the access to the internet.
