Market analysis augurs sharp drop in mobile, landline tariffs
A fresh market analysis by Hungary's National Media and Infocommunications Authority (NMHH) shows per-minute tariffs for both mobile and land line calls are set to drop markedly in the next three years, with wholesale prices dropping as much as 40%.
NMHH regulates wholesale prices which affect retail tariffs.
NMHH intervenes on the market to make available the best and the cheapest services to consumers, said spokeswoman Karola Kiricsi. The per-minute wholesale price for mobile calls is set to fall from gross HUF 11.86 in 2011 to HUF 9.46 in 2012 and HUF 7.06 in 2013, she added.
