Hungaryʼs National Media and Infocommunications Authority (NMHH) yesterday fined Magyar Telekom HUF 65 mln on charges of failing to give clients compensation and related information regarding restriction of services, the Authority said. 

The sanction was not Magyar Telekomʼs first in the field, and apparently affected thousands of clients. The company also temporarily gained several million forints with the practice, NMHH told state news agency MTI as a justification for the size of the fine.

On Febuary 13, the authority fined Magyar Telekom HUF 160 mln for allegedly violating regulations and general contract conditions by restricting services, and it fined Magyar Telekomʼs chief executive an additional HUF 2 mln.
