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.
At the end of 2018, there were a total of 170 subscription packages in the five categories: landline telephone, wired internet, mobile Internet, prepaid phone and mobile subscription. Of these, 88 packages were new, ie since January 2018, representing more than half of the total supply, 52 percent.

The analysis included a total of 640 packages, including packages that have already been closed but still have subscribers. Probably the number and frequent change of packages is partly due to the fact that according to the market research commissioned by NMHH, 60 percent of mobile phone users and households with fixed internet have never switched to a tariff package.

Last year, Telekom and Invitel both narrowed the number of newly-subscribed landline tariff packages in the telephone services market. The general tendency is that mobile services contain an ever-larger data frame, and the data traffic that can be used for roaming is also increasing. Service Providers Regularly Increase Data – eg they provide summer data doubling. In 2018, unlimited international calls and unlimited data traffic in the EU roaming market appeared as a novelty.
