The Czech Association of Electronic Communications (CAEK) has welcomed both the upcoming AT&T/Time Warner merger and the recent agreement between Liberty Global and Vodafone.
Speaking to Broadband TV News, Zdenek Vanicek, chairman of the association at CAEK, said that the former, once it receives regulatory approval in the US, will noticeably strengthen the profile and performance of the video part of Czech electronic communications from 2019 onwards.
Meanwhile, the Vodafone/Liberty Global deal may soon affect the Czech electronic communications industries significantly and the CAEK believes it is a powerful step forward in the right direction.
The CAEK represents both the telecom and media/cable TV industries in the Czech Republic.
It is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and will hold a jubilee conference in Prague on November 21.
