In June 2007 the communication network built by GTS Novera (as of 1st. October 2010 GTS Czech) started operating in Bílovec Microregion. The network is connecting five communities, including the town of Bílovec, providing also public Internet access points in all the communities.

Easier search for work and information

Apart from the municipal and local government offices and agencies, the network will also serve the population and visitors in the microregion, allowing communicating with local offices and agencies, searching for information or for work. It also provides an opportunity for wireless, broadband access to Internet to all households.

“The new communication network has made an important contribution to the development of information society in our region. It significantly simplified communication between the local government offices and agencies besides providing many advantages to all visitors and population in the town”, said Sylva Kováčiková, the Mayoress of Bílovec. “The public Internet access points will also provide a new opportunity for the unemployed who will be able to look for work using Internet free of charge in the place where they live without going to the Labour Office or to look for work on the job boards“, she added.

“In all nine locations people will be able to use free Internet access points, and also the WiFi connection points, available to the public”, said Tomáš Budník, Technical Division Manager for GTS Novera. “What’s more, within two kilometres from these locations the households will be able to get a broadband, wireless connection to Internet,“ he added.

The cost of building new communication network was CZK 11.287 million including VAT. 95 % of the costs were covered by grants from the EU, the state and the region. The European Regional Development Fund provided CZK 8.465 million for the project, with CZK 1.129 million coming from the State Budget of the Czech Republic and the same amount from the budget of the Moravia-Silesia Region.

Solution made to measure

The new network covers nine locations in the Bílovec Microregion - the four local communities (Bítov, Slatina, Tísek and Těškovice) and the town of Bílovec with its four local municipal areas Výškovice, Ohrada, Stará Ves and Lubojaty. In all the nine locations people will be able to get a free access to the Internet via the so-called PIAPs (public internet access points) where they can read their e-mail, search for information and even save documents on the USB disk. At those points they will be also able to get wireless connection to the Internet using WiFi technology. Internet connection at these points is free of charge and operates at a reduced speed.

For households the other option for Internet access is to have a wireless broadband connection installed at home. Depending on the local conditions, the households up to 2 km from the transmitter points will be able to get broadband. connection There is a  charge for installing and using this wireless broad connection to the Internet.
