Landlines down, broadband up in September

Tourism

The number of landline telephone connections in Hungary fell 9,000 to 3.379 million in September month-on-month, while broadband internet connections rose 17,000 to 537,000, the National Telecommunications Authority (NHH) said on Monday.

The number of landlines per 100 Hungarians fell to 33.57 at the end of September from 33.65 at the end of August. The ratio of households with landlines fell to 66.7% from 67.87% during the same period. The number of ADSL subscriptions rose 12,000 to 252,000. Cable subscriptions accounted for most of the remaining internet connections. Some 789,000 Hungarians had internet access in their homes at the end of September, compared to 760,000 a month earlier.
The NHH based its statistics for the period on figures from the country's five former concession holders, Magyar Telekom Nyrt, Hungarotel Zrt, Emitel Zrt, Invitel Zrt and Monortel Zrt, as well as alternative telcos PanTel Kft, Tele2 Kft, GTS Datanet Kft and eTel Hungary Kft and cable companies UPC Hungary Kft, T-Kábel Zrt, Fibernet Zrt and EMKTV Kft. These companies account for 85%-90% of the entire broadband market.
