Thursday 9 May 2019 | 08:09 CET | News
The gross prices of the majority of independent internet services in Hungary fell by 11 percent in 2018 primarily as a result of a drop in internet sales, according to an analysis by local telecommunications authority NMHH on prices and market offerings. Also, the prices of mobile data plans decreased to a lesser extent. Prices for service packages including internet fell by 1-8 percent, the same research shows. The range of offered packages is also constantly changing, with more than half of the packages being available for less than a year.
