Hungary’s Magyar Telekom, which is part of the Deutsche Telekom group, has doubled its residential fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband upload peak speed to 1Gbps. The telco’s premium 2Gbps and 1Gbps (maximum download) packages are now both delivered with gigabit maximum uplink (compared to a respective 500Mbps and 200Mbps previously), although Magyar Telekom only guarantees that users will receive 300Mbps/50Mbps (down/uplink) for each. Lower-tier broadband package upload caps have also been upgraded, for both FTTH and cable broadband subscribers.
Magyar Telekom also announced an upgrade to the benefits received by subscribers to its ‘Magenta 1’ discounted fixed/mobile bundles, offered to new or existing customers taking at least two fixed (internet/telephony/TV) and one mobile service. Magenta 1 is now offering up to 30% discount on the monthly converged bill, double mobile data volume (in Hungary only), an additional 500MB mobile upload bonus, unlimited ‘TV GO’ mobile TV streaming, a HUF30,000 (USD107) discount on any device purchase (new customers only), and unlimited mobile ‘family’ calling within a group of five phone numbers.
