Competition

Telenor Magyarország plans to spend HUF 9 billion on network development this year, compared with HUF 7 bln in 2015, chief technology officer Zsolt Sepsi told Hungarian news agency MTI on Friday.

The investments will mainly serve to improve indoor coverage for private users and expand the 4G+ (LTE Advanced) network, he said. 

Sepsi said Telenorʼs 4G network was among the best within the Telenor group, and that it features nationwide outdoor coverage of more than 97%, compared with 50% in 2014.

Telenor is also developing its 3G network and will spend substantial amounts on improving indoor coverage of the 4G network this year, he added.
