Czech Republic - Communication (Telephone, Post, Internet, TV, Radio)
The majority of Czech citizens rely upon mobile phones for their communication needs. Residential telephone lines are relatively uncommon and obtaining one can take months of effort and red tape. Owning a mobile phone is virtually essential. If you are renting a house or apartment it is unlikely a residential line will be available. If you must have a dedicated home telephone line, contact the provider Czech Telecom. A fee of approximately CZK 3500 applies.

High-speed, reliable Internet service is increasing in availability throughout the Czech Republic, although currently the majority of businesses rely upon mobile phones more than e-mail.

If you don't have access to a computer there are numerous cybercafes available where you can access the Internet for an hourly fee.
Although it is improving, the Czech postal service has not yet established a reputation for reliability or efficiency. Private courier services are available for important letters and parcels, although they can be costly.
The majority of Post Offices are open weekdays from 8 am to 6 pm and closed on weekends. One exception is the one located near the Namesti Republiky metro station, which is open 24 hours a day. The main Post Office at Jindrisska 14 operates from 7 am to 8 pm.
The local television system is the European PAL. There are also several satellite TV providers to choose from.
BBC World Service: 101.1 FM; short wave: 6195, 9410, 12095
Radio France International: 99.3 FM
Central Europe Today: 91.9 FM (Mon.-Fri. 7:00-7:15 a.m.]
