Hungary - Key Statistics, Regulatory and Fixed-line Telecoms Overviews

Hungary was early to deregulate its telecoms market but interconnection and loop unbundling disputes delayed full and effective competition. The regulator has been effective in promoting competition in line with aligning interconnection and access tariffs to the EU average. As in many other markets in the region, the number of fixed-lines, as also fixed-line revenue, has been affected by the changing consumer use of such services and by the trend for fixed-to-mobile substitution. Fixed-line operators have thus looked to broadband internet access and broadband-based services to boost revenue. The economic crisis has also affected telecom revenue, exacerbated by the government's recent telecom taxes. The attempt to impose a tax on internet data traffic was abandoned in November 2014 following civil demonstrations against it. This report provides an overview of Hungary's telecoms and IT market, highlighting regulatory developments, major operators, fixed-line network infrastructure, and a variety of insightful statistics.

Key developments:

Mid Europa Partners puts Invitel Holdings up for sale; government scraps proposed levy on internet traffic; Deutsche Telekom acquires GTS Central Europe's business in Hungary; EC drops legal case against telecom crisis tax; operators report lower revenue; new access regulations incorporate fibre and cable infrastructure sharing; National Media and Infocommunication Authority inaugurated to oversee telecoms sector; regulator market data to September 2014; telcos' financial and operating data for Q3 2014; recent market developments.
