According to the Hungarian government, the Internet is the fastest in Hungary

Among European states, those living in Hungary use the Internet the fastest, said the Deputy Secretary of State for Digitization of the Ministry of Innovation and Technology (ITM) at the 5G Coalition (5GK) conference in Budapest.

According to Balázs Károly Solymár, a modern network infrastructure, including 5G (fifth generation wireless network), is essential for Hungary to become one of the most livable states in Europe by 2030, according to the government’s plans. The advantage of the technology is not simply speed, but a multitude of new uses, from industry to agriculture to residential applications, he added.

The Undersecretary of State said the state is taking the initiative to reap the benefits of 5G. This requires creating a favorable development environment as well as breaking down barriers to use, he said. Balázs Károly Solymár welcomed the fact that the domestic network performed well during the epidemic, and Hungary ranks eighth in Europe in terms of 5G readiness. However, he called for further expansion of the telecommunications infrastructure and promised government support to domestic network developers.

Two-thirds of them see it as a very significant technological innovation, with only 11 percent accepting it with reservations, but they don’t mind resentment, either primarily because of 5G, but because of technological advances in general. Ákos Mácz is satisfied with the results of the poll, but believes that further dissemination would be needed to promote 5G.

At the same time, András Levente Gál emphasized that digitalisation is constantly raising new and new, cross-cutting legal issues.

He also mentioned the new competition law situations as a challenge, as well as the speed of change, which is also forcing the legislation to change.
