Magyar Telekom’s gigabit networks pass 3m premises

22 Feb 2022

Hungary’s Magyar Telekom announced that its gigabit fixed broadband speeds are now available to more than three million homes and businesses, representing 69% of access points covered by its entire fixed network. In full-year 2021 Telekom’s fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) access network passed an additional 401,000 premises (including 169,000 in small settlements with under 5,000 households), while its HFC cable broadband network was upgraded with gigabit-capable technology at 40,000 additional access points.

Telekom’s statement added that its FTTP network is currently available in 1,150 settlements across the country, with 820 of these boasting 80% or higher levels of fibre coverage. Furthermore, during FY21 the telco disconnected its legacy copper network in 100 settlements. Approximately a million customers are now subscribed to gigabit fixed broadband services from Telekom, including more than half a million connected to the direct fibre network.

TeleGeography notes that Magyar Telekom’s latest coverage milestone follows its announcement of May 2020 when it disclosed reaching two million premises passed by gigabit networks. The operator plans to continue expanding its high speed networks throughout 2022.
