Hungarian regulator gets tough with UPC

15 Jan 2018

Cableco UPC Hungary has been issued with a HUF121 million (USD478,000) fine by telecoms watchdog NMHH for launching triple-play services in the town of Cegled around two years before notifying the regulator, Broadband TV News reported. NMHH claimed that the services in Cegled – officially registered in September 2017 – had previously been operated without ensuring ‘that the network was technically compliant and its deployment legally sufficient’. NMHH slapped UPC with a smaller (HUF30 million) fine for a similar offence in April 2017. UPC may appeal the latest decision.
