'Superfast' internet coming to Hungary in February 2017

The network is expected to be completed by the end of 2018, meaning Hungary will beat the common European target by two years

The Hungarian government is sticking to its pledge of providing fast internet, it has been revealed.

According to MTI, work will begin on building a “superfast” internet network in 139 districts of Hungary in February 2017, the government commissioner in charge of the Digital Prosperity Programme said.

Tamás Deutsch told a news conference in Szeged, in southern Hungary, that the country will be among the first European Union member states in which data transfer speeds of at least 30 megabits per second will be available thanks to a 150 billion HUF investment scheme over two years.

The network is expected to be completed by the end of 2018, meaning Hungary will beat the common European target by two years, he said.
