Broadband penetration climbs in November

4 Jan 2007

According to the latest official data from Hungary’s telecoms regulator the National Telecommunications Authority (NHH), the country was home to 553,000 broadband subscribers at the end of November, up 16,000 on the previous month. Of the total, 265,000 had an ADSL connection (+13,000), while cable modem subscriptions accounted for the majority of all other broadband lines. The NHH added that more than 818,000 Hungarians had internet access at home at the end of November, compared to 789,000 a month earlier.

The Budapest Business Journal writes that the NHH bases its statistics on figures from Magyar Telekom, Hungarotel, Emitel, Invitel and Monortel, as well as alternative telcos PanTel, Tele2, GTS Datanet and eTel Hungary, and cable companies UPC Hungary, T-Kábel, Fibernet and EMKTV. Together, these companies account for between 85% and 90% of the total broadband market.
