PRAGUE Aug 14 (Reuters) - O2 Czech Republic is analysing options for separating its fixed-telecommunication infrastructure into a separate company to provide wholesale services, it said on Thursday in a regulatory filing.

It said it would make a decision on the project after the analysis, adding that the Czech regulator had been informed about its intentions.

The statement followed a report in Czech daily Hospodarske Noviny on Wednesday that the Czech group's owner PPF planned to split the company into two parts.
