Prague. June 13 (CTK) - Czech fixed-line operator Cesky Telecom said today it would cut all items on its wholesale price list for other operators by CZK 22. feeding hopes that the price of fast Internet connection through ADSL may drop.
The price of the cheapest ADSL connection at 512 kbit/s will drop to CZK 282 from CZK 304 a month. Petr Matejovsky. product manager for the Internet. said the final prices would not drop.
Stanislava Beyerova. spokeswoman for rival operator Volny. said the change was only cosmetic. "We plan to use the drop in wholesale prices to improve the main parameters of the current ADSL services in the future." she added.
