T-Mobile Hungary deploys HSPA+ at 300 BTS

1 Aug 2011

Magyar Telekom (MTel’s) wireless arm T-Mobile Hungary had deployed HSPA+ mobile broadband technology at 300 locations across the country by the end of last month. The upgrade is part of a wider network development programme and will allow users in those areas covered to receive download speeds of up to 21Mbps. Going forward the cellco will continue the phased rollout of HSPA+ with a view to upgrading all base transceiver stations (BTS) on its network. The cellco says the 21Mbps service has now been connected in a number of new areas, including some parts of Kazincbarcika, Nagyszenas, Harkany, Balatonboglar and Tokol. To support its rollout plan T-Mobile is launching a promotional offer from today (1 August) promising super fast mobile internet packages with a 16GB data download cap, dubbed Net&Roll M, priced at HUF6,990 (USD37.4) per month, and a 26GB package, Net&Roll L, costing HUF9,400.
