8 June 2021, Budapest – In parallel to the restless expansion of its mobile segment, DIGI has been conducting a large-scale fix line development throughout the capital and the countryside. The works focused on enlarging transfer capacity and steadiness, along with updating the central routers in Budapest. Besides the capital city, DIGI has also been developing its network on the countryside so the cutting-edge FTTH (Fiber-To-The-Home) network of the Company is now available in 12 newly connected major regional settlements.
Since entering the Hungarian telecommunications market almost a quarter of a century ago, DIGI has been aiming to provide the best quality, value for money service for its customers. Nothing proves better the popularity of DIGI’s services amongst customers than its second market place on the Hungarian telecommunications market with 22,6% market share1.
Besides its strong market position, DIGI’s high quality fix line service quality is reflected in the first place both in download and upload speed category of a survey2 that Szélessáv.net conducted. In the results average, DIGI’s network won the download speed category by a landslide with 601,93 Mbps, which was almost 150 Mbps faster than the download speed of the runner-up following DIGI. The Company’s network was also ranked first in the field of fix line internet upload speed with its 241,33 Mbps performance.
This year so far, to continue to provide great quality service, DIGI has been developing its central routers, enlarging capacity of backbone network in five towns on the countryside and in eight districts of Budapest. DIGI subscribers could enjoy the benefits of 1000 Mbit/s download speed if they already had FTTH (Fiber to the Home) services. With the newly upgraded backbone system the steadiness, reliability, transfer capacity and undisturbed services of DIGI’s own network has been strengthened. The re-built even more stable backbone network supports the data transfer technology in the following settlements and districts of Budapest: III, VI, IX, X, XI, XIII, XIV, XV, as well as towns of Hatvan, Gödöllő, Szigetszentmiklós, Tatabánya, Veszprém.
Besides the progress made in Budapest and the above towns, the Company also made available its impressive infrastructure of newly built FTTH (Fibre-To-The-Home) network with 1 GB nominal download speed capacity at end users in 12 new major cities on the countryside: Debrecen, Miskolc, Nyíregyháza, Szeged, Békéscsaba, Szolnok, Gyöngyös, Kecskemét, Veszprém, Százhalombatta, Hatvan, Tiszaújváros.
