The launch, the first by a European operator, was carried out in partnership with Cisco Systems and Microsoft Hungary and will compliment its existing ADSL, VDSL and fibre-based TV services to boost network coverage to a potential 1.5 million households. Initially, the incumbent is focusing its cable-based IPTV deployment in Budapest and south-eastern Hungary, but the rest of the country is scheduled to follow at a later date.
