T-Mobile to extend 4G coverage
T-Mobile Hungary plans to extend the service coverage of its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network to suburban parts of Budapest and smaller towns around the country this summer, Magyar Telekom said at the weekend.
The 4G network, launched in January, now provides outdoor population coverage of 90% of the capital, while indoor coverage is 73%. Before the launch of the program, the network had a 40% coverage rate in Budapest.
By the end of June the carrier hopes to increase its LTE footprint to the areas of Göd, Fót, Szentendre, Nagykovácsi, Tököl, Diósd, Csömör, Taksony, Piliscsaba, Üllő, Gyömrő, Sződliget, Mogyoród in the vicinity of Budapest. The towns of Szombathely, Debrecen, Kecskemét, Győr, Siófok and Keszthely and Hévíz will also be served at the same date.
Alongside its 4G rollout, T-Mobile Hungary is also continuing efforts to boost its 3G/HSPA coverage which currently stands at 474 towns and cities, equivalent to 75% of the Hungarian population.
