Hungary was home to a total of 1.982 million broadband connections at the end of June 2011, up 2,000 month-on-month, according to data published yesterday by the National Media and Infocommunications Authority (NMHH). The regulator’s report highlights that the total number of people hooked up via ADSL lines fell to 795,000 by mid-2011, from 798,000 in May, although those taking a broadband cable service increased by a net 4,000 to 778,000 at end-June. In addition, the number of fibre-optic subscriptions inched up to 235,000 from 234,000 at the end of May. The NMHH estimates that incumbent operator Magyar Telekom had a market share of 34.6% at the end of June, followed by cableco UPC with 20.9%. Other broadband providers with a ‘significant subscriber base’ were Digi and Invitel, the watchdog said.
