Vodafone and NMHH sign frequency contract

5 Nov 2014

Mobile service provider Vodafone and telecoms regulator the National Media and Infocommunications Authority of Hungary (NMHH) have signed a contract for frequencies won at the end of September 2014. The Hungarian arm of Britain’s Vodafone Group won mobile broadband frequencies in the 800MHz/900MHz/2600MHz bands, at a cost of HUF30.23 billion (USD122.5 million) and amounting to 31% of the frequencies that were available for purchase. The signing of the contract on 3 November follows the announcement on 31 October from the country’s Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, that a controversial proposed internet tax-per-gigabyte (GB) will not be implemented.
