Magyar Telekom announces fixed network developments

14 Jul 2016

Hungarian telco Magyar Telekom (MTel) has announced ‘significant’ enhancements to its fixed network in Budapest, noting that a number of districts within the capital are receiving infrastructure modernisation. Last year network capability developments commenced in the Zuglo and Ujbuda districts, with completion mooted for the ‘end of summer’ 2016, while users in Angyafols, Csepel and Kobanya have already benefited from fixed line infrastructure improvements and can now access faster internet connection speeds. Meanwhile, network modernisation is expected to take place in the districts of Obuda, Jozsefvaros, Pilisborosjeno, Biatorbagy and Torokbalint later this year. MTel claims that in 2015 it made broadband speeds of at least 30Mbps available to 464,000 households across the country under its internally funded fixed line development plan, while it plans to add 500,000 premises to this number by the end of 2016.
