Budapest, 6 December 2021 – In December 2021 DIGI completed a three-year long development work on its fixed line. As a result, the company's backbone network covering 16 major cities among many others on the countryside is now connected to the Budapest center via own optical network.

The length of the backbone network, constructed gradually since 2018 as part of DIGI’s own investment, exceeds 2000 km, thus covering major rural cities like Debrecen, Nyíregyháza, Miskolc, Hatvan, Tiszaújváros, Szolnok, Cegléd, Kecskemét, Szeged, Békéscsaba, Baja, Győr, Siófok, Székesfehérvár, Veszprém and Dunaújváros. The three years of development allowed DIGI’s cutting-edge fiber-to-the-home backbone network on the countryside to connect to the Budapest centre via its own optical network. Consequently, DIGI subscribers living in the areas covered can enjoy the company's high-quality fixed line services, i.e., the Internet with a nominal download speed of 1 Gbit/s, as well as various channels, including DIGI's own thematic channels. The company’s 1Gbit/s service is provided for more than 90% of its customers, making DIGI's optical fiber network one of the most technically advanced on the market.

The three-year-long, large-scale fixed network development fits well with the practice of previous years: in September 2020, as a result of nearly 10 years of persistent work and investment, DIGI handed over the upgraded network to its subscribers in Szeged; in March 2021 it handed over upgrades in six counties, and in the summer the company reported on the development of its central routers. As the capstone of recent years’ innovation DIGI announced its Fiberlink 10G service, which will based on 10G technology and will be capable of providing a download speed of near 10 Gbit/s, a historical milestone in the Hungarian telecommunications market.

In addition to its fixed network, DIGI has also paid special attention to the development of its mobile service in recent years: since its launch in 2019, the company has made the DIGIMobil service available in more than 900 settlements, providing outdoor coverage approximately for 90% of the population.
