The Polish market: high potential in Eastern Europe?

Some countries are less known for their Internet-knowledge and usage than others. And sometimes that's too bad, because a lot of these countries might be underestimated. Poland is probably one of them.

The Eastern-European country has got no less than 16 million active Internet users, which makes it the number 8th largest country in Europe. At a Polish Internet Consultant, Radoslaw Kmita, showed us the potential of the country we mostly know of Football and their workers who come abroad.
