Husak (TOP 09): Do not disturb the regulation of Internet connection, it turns against customers


BRNO (MEDIAFAX) - The current effort of the Czech Telecommunication Office annul the regulation of high-speed internet can turn against customers. According to Deputy John Husak (TOP 09) there is an increase in prices that are already among the highest in the Czech Republic in the European Union.

ůkonkurence not sufficient, the abolition of regulation might destroy small businesses and strengthen the monopoly Telefonica company, "said Wednesday the agency Mediafax ave Husak, who chairs the House Subcommittee on electronic communications and ICT industry and deals with a problem.

Repeal of regulation of Internet access, according to Husak led only to raise prices. : Repeal of regulation therefore consider a step that is not in the interest of Czech customers, "said Member.

The regulation of the telecommunications market under the law Husak replaces the missing or dysfunctional competition. CTO has just this regulation to ensure a high level of consumer protection. "Competition in the telecommunications market is broken, we see that the services of mobile operators, which are compared with those abroad overpriced. As CTO and partially canceling the regulation ceases to meet one of the basic tasks that he also required by law," said Husak. This is indirectly confirmed by the European Commission, which plans to partially repeal the CTO refused to regulation. "CTO should start protecting Czech customers and not multinational operators," said Member.

In all EU countries exist under Husak fully-fledged virtual operators who offer their customers attractive and cost effective services. The only country which still does not, the Czech Republic."The local operators have not run their networks to a single full-fledged virtual operator. I am sure that the same situation would occur if the regulation was abolished for high-speed Internet access over time to all monopoly Telefonica could dispose of smaller ISPs," Husak is concerned.

Internet via a telephone line is used by Telefónica 790,000 customers, while other operators have a total of only 93 thousand. "Telefonica is primarily due to inheritance of Cesky Telecom almost 90 percent of all customers. Unlike CTO do not think it would be a balanced competition, and therefore want to maintain control, 'said Husak.
