T-Mobile Hungary increases LTE footprint

17 Jul 2012

Magyar Telekom’s (MTel’s) mobile arm T-Mobile Hungary has extended its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) coverage to the areas of Kecskemet and Szombathely. From mid-July, it says the advanced mobile service is available in ‘most areas’ of the two new regions. Specifically, T-Mobile says the LTE network will provide 98% (outdoor) population coverage and 76% (indoor) in Kecskemet, while in Szombathely the metrics are 98% and 69%, respectively. Customers in the two regions wishing to use 4G can sign up to T-Mobile’s Net&Roll 4G mobile internet package, which is based on 4G USB modems or Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE tablets.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, T-Mobile was the first Hungarian cellco to dip its toe in the 4G LTE market, when it switched on its service in Budapest on 1 January this year. As it stands, the cellco’s 4G network in the capital provides outdoor population coverage of 98%, while indoor coverage is 73%.
