Magyar Telekom, the Hungarian unit of German telecom giant Deutsche Telecom, will connect approximately 440,000 households to its 4G network by installing 2,500 kms of optical cable throughout the country, Hungarian online portal investor.hu reported yesterday.
The company expects to raise 4G coverage to 2.2 million households from the current 1.8 million. The company noted that the gap in quality of internet service between the capital and the rest of the country would become smaller with the investment.
