According to data published by the Hungarian telecoms regulator the National Telecommunications Authority of Hungary (NCAH), the number of ADSL and cable modem broadband subscriptions rose 27% year-on-year to 1.45 million by the end of June. Of the total, 779,000 were ADSL-based broadband internet subscribers, up from 685,000 a year earlier, and about 668,000 were cable, against 351,000 at end-June 2007. The NCAH’s figures for cable take-up are based on an estimate compiled using the operational statistics from the country’s top four cablecos UPC, T-Kabel, Fibernet and Digi, which between them had 474,000 customers at the end of June, equivalent to around 70% of that segment.
