Hungary - Broadband Market Insights, Statistics and Forecasts

Hungary enjoys high internet usage levels, with broadband representing the majority of internet connections. Competition is both infrastructure and regulatory-based, with the latter made viable due to the regulator's actions to promote competition. DSL and cable are the two most popular broadband platforms. Competition and the demand for bandwidth are pushing the drive for higher speed platforms, and so have encouraged operators to invest in FttX and EuroDOCSIS3.0. Catering for the large internet user base are useful online services and applications, fostering the development of an internet society, a trend recognised and encouraged by the government through investment and policy. It is hoped that internet society development will increase productivity and improve the standard of living.
