Mobile Infrastructure, Broadband, Operators
Hungary’s dynamic mobile market is served by three mobile network operators and a growing number of MVNOs. The bundled services operator DIGI Telecommunications is building up a mobile network based on its 1800MHz concessions, supplemented by spectrum in the 3.4GHz which it secured at auction in June 2016. Mobile penetration is relatively high for the region, and there remains considerable growth in mobile broadband services delivered via upgraded networks. These upgrades have supported a rapid increase in the use of smartphones, and consequently of mobile data. Revenue growth is focused on mobile data as operators struggle with competition and regulated tariff reductions, as well as reduced MTRs.
Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses
Hungary has high broadband penetration for the region. Infrastructure-based competition is intense, with an extensive cable network, mainly operated by UPC Hungary, competing against DSL services and a vibrant and rapidly expanding fibre sector. The regulator has introduced a number of measures aimed at promoting market competition. Competition and the demand for bandwidth are pushing the drive for higher speed platforms, and so have encouraged operators to invest in FttX and DOCSIS3.0 upgrades. Both of these technologies will be increasingly important to the market during the next few years. It is expected that UPC Hungary will begin to deploy DOCSIS3.1 technology later in 2017, providing data at 1Gb/s or higher. In addition, amendments to the Utility Tax have encouraged operators to accelerate the deployment of superfast networks (those which provide data of at least 30Mb/s).
