Telenor Hungary upgrades HSPA network to 42Mbps

Competition

Telenor Hungary is doubling the speed of its Hipernet service from the initially announced 21 Mbps to 42 Mbps, first in Budapest and its vicinity, Telecompaper.com reported.

In addition to increasing data rates, the project also doubles the capacity of base stations after nearly 600 base stations have been upgraded.

The base stations will be capable of providing better quality and more stable service to a higher number of simultaneous users with more radio resources, website said citing Telenor.

As a result, subscribers without Hipernet-enabled devices will also enjoy better service quality in the areas covered by the new network, it said.

The HUF 53 billion deal at catalogue price will help bridge the digital divide in underdeveloped regions, eliminate digital illiteracy and improve Hungary's competitiveness, Telenor said.
