O2 Czech Republic

O2 is the biggest telecommunications operator in the Czech Republic. (From PPF Group’s viewpoint, the relationship between PPF and O2 is one of financial investment; PPF Group does not play any role in the commercial management of the company.)

O2 currently manages almost eight million mobile and fixed lines. The company offers the latest HSPA+ and LTE technology to mobile customers in the Czech Republic. In 2012 and 2013, O2 completely revolutionised the Czech telecoms market when it became the first operator in the country to allow virtual operators to access its own network, and launched its innovative range of “FREE” unlimited tariffs in the spring of 2013.

O2 has the most comprehensive range of voice and data services in the Czech Republic; we devote particular attention to leveraging growth potential, mainly in ICT. Thanks to data centres covering in aggregate 7,300 square metres, O2 is one of the largest players in hosting and cloud services, as well as in managed services. O2 is the only operator in the Czech Republic and Central Europe to receive Tier III certification for its data centres.

With its O2 TV service, O2 is also the largest online television operator in the Czech Republic.

In Slovakia, where O2 has been active since 2007, the company had more than 2 million mobile customers at the end of 2018.
