Almost 100,000 families have so far made use of the opportunity of the free internet service available to high school students and teachers during the second wave of the pandemic in Hungary, State Secretary Tamás Schanda, of the Ministry for Innovation and Technology said, according to portfolio.hu.

These subscribers saved almost HUF 1 billion in internet service fees, he added. Students from the 9th grade and up returned to digital classrooms from November 11 due to restrictions to contain the second wave of the pandemic.

At that time Hungary's government had ordered 30 days of free internet service for households in which students and teachers are in digital classrooms because of pandemic restrictions and the measure has since been extended.
