Hungary - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

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).

This report provides an overview of Hungary’s broadband market, including market analyses, statistics and scenario-based forecasts for fixed broadband to 2021.

Government invests HUF150 billion in program to deliver universal 30Mb/s broadband services by 2018; telcos strike deal with the government to extend broadband to underserved areas; Utility Tax amendments favouring superfast broadband network roll-outs; RG Networks launches satellite broadband via Eutelsat; FttX subscriber base broaches 520,000; government expands e-payment systems; Maygar Telecom steps up e-health initiatives; report update includes the regulator’s market data to October 2016, telcos’ financial and operating data to Q3 2016, recent market developments.
