Hungarian mobile market reaches 11.43 million users – end-April

3 Jun 2008

Hungary’s incumbent mobile operators Pannon, Vodafone and T-Mobile collectively signed up a net 208,033 new subscribers last month to boost the country’s total cellular base to 11.43 million. Of the total, 10.26 million subscriptions were classed as ‘active’ by telecoms regulator NHH at the end of April, equating to a cellular penetration rate of 113.9% (up from 111.8% a month earlier). Data published by the watchdog shows that Pannon lost market share last month, from 35.29% in March to 35.03% a month later, while T-Mobile edged its own share upwards from 43.88% to 44.20%. Third-placed cellco Vodafone also saw its slice of the pie declining slightly from 20.83% to 20.77%, NHH said.
