Getting Online: Internet in Hungary

Find about the Internet options available to you in your home in Hungary...

Most providers offer ADSL (broadband) connection, which requires an existing landline installed either by T-home or Invitel, and the request goes through the landline company. Some providers offer cable Internet.

T-home and UPC provide various packages, which include Internet, landlines and TV channels. Since T-home owns the majority of landlines, they can usually organise a connection in the shortest period of time.
