Magyar Telekom is introducing the Docsis 3.1 standard in its cable network, which will ensure gigabit download speed for the customers. The development is relevant to most parts of the cable network, currently provides the benefits of higher speed for households in various regions of the country, at 650 access points. In the future, Telekom will further improve its gigabit cable network coverage.

The operator started providing twice as fast as speeds with its new fixed internet package that supports download speeds of up to 1 Gbps download speed. In addition to this, broadband internet, IPTV and fixed voice services can also be used via the cable network.

Thanks to the intensive network development of the past years, the Telekom network provides gigabit speed, altogether at more than 1.7 million access points, which represents one-third of households and businesses in Hungary. In areas covered with optical technology, an internet package with up to 2 Gbps download speed can be offered, which is the highest speed available on the residential market today, the company says in a press release. The benefits offered by the optical network are not only available for city dwellers, but also for the inhabitants of 400 settlements with populations of less than 5,000.

Building upon the results of its network's development, Magyar Telekom provides inspiration for more awareness in using the internet, in its campaign, whose main message is: Be ready for action, use the opportunities offered by digitalisation, give meaning to unlimited internet by consciously using the network of actions (Tettek Halozata). The campaign, running on several platforms, using multiple devices, deals with phenomena connected to internet use such as content dependence, fake news and cyber-bullying.
