STRENGTHS
Czech Republic ranks 29th in GCI 2018.

It has an outstanding set of scores in broadband and reaches a balance between the overall penetration of service and the prices, which is thanks to its well-developed digital infrastructure. 4G coverage makes improvement and MBB subscription has also hit the maximum score with better Big data experience and potentiality in data center and IoT. According to GCI indicators, the Czech Republic has experienced same level of development in cloud computing investment and migration since last year.

Possible actions are to expand the scenarios for cloud usage. In Czech’s case, they could promote the digitalization of government since Czech is below average in the provision of digital public services. It is reported that the country has one of the lowest shares of e-government users in the EU, the low use of online public services reflects deficiencies in the supply of such services.

Czech citizens have a good level of digital skills and as a result, they engage in a wide variety of online activities. Czech Internet users are quite keen on online banking and on online shopping. Czech businesses use digital technologies, both to improve their efficiency and productivity as well as to access wider markets and lead the ranks in turnover from online sales. They also strongly engage in e-commerce and lead in using websites for presenting their products and prices.
OPPORTUNITIES
The government of the Czech Republic adopted "Digital Czech Republic v. 2.0 - The Way to the Digital Economy”, updated state policy basing on three pillars which is promoting the development of high-quality infrastructure, the further expansion of digital services and fostering digital literacy. The main objective is to harness the potential of the Czech Republic and to develop modern information and communication technologies and services. Czech government has set the target of achieving universal high-speed internet access for the population of the Czech Republic. A massive development of high-speed access networks will be required to provide for a transmission speed of 30 Mbit/s for the entire population and 100 Mbit/s for at least half of all Czechs by 2020. In order not to fall behind the others, Czech will stimulate investment and remove barriers hindering the growth of the digital economy. The Digital Czech Republic v. 2.0 policy has set targets to be met by 2020, such as an efficient use of the radio spectrum for the benefit of end users, strengthening self-regulatory mechanisms of the digital economy, increasing the availability of ICT for all regardless of location, social status or disability, or the promotion of lifelong learning with an emphasis on strengthening digital literacy.
