CzechToll was created to develop PPF Group’s long-term strategic plans for telecommunications infrastructure. In order to build a new toll system in the Czech Republic, it teamed up with SkyToll, a Slovak company that operates electronic tolls and runs a system enabling passenger cars to pay for their motorway use with electronic vignettes.
This project became the world’s first-ever generational replacement of an electronic toll system entirely created in the Czech Republic thanks to contributions from some 100 Czech companies. This reliable technology and the entire team’s experience led to a successful and smooth launch free of major disruptions and without any downtime in toll collection. The new system is three times cheaper to run than the old microwave technology.
