Telenor 4G now available for smartphone users

4 Sep 2013

Telenor Hungary has extended the availability of its 4G LTE service to smartphone and tablet customers, just over one year after launching the mobile broadband network for PC users. Until the end of the year the ‘Hipernet 4G’ service, which has a theoretical maximum download speed of 86.4Mbps and an upload speed of 43.2Mbps, is available at no extra fee to all post-paid customers with a voice and data tariff plan or with a monthly data subscription on their mobile phone, as a launch promotion. Commenting on the development, Telenor Hungary’s CTO Zsolt Sepsi said: ‘Since the launch of our 4G mobile network an increasing number of customers have requested that we offer today’s most state-of-the-art mobile internet technology not only on computers but also on smartphones and tablets. I’m very pleased that from today smartphone users can also enjoy the key benefits of Hipernet 4G including download and upload speeds higher than those of most fixed line technologies and an extremely short mobile internet response time. As a result of our ongoing network development efforts, we will make 4G technology available to nearly 25% of Hungary’s population by the end of the year.’
