Previously, the village only had a copper network but thanks to the development and the cutting-edge Gigabit-capable optical network, now Telekom’s 1000 Mpbs NetMánia 1000 1 service is available in Gödre as well.

In the autumn of 2016 Magyar Telekom and its subsidiaries were awarded with HUF 12.2 billion of EU funds for the development of at least 30 Mbps fixed-line network. Until the end of 2018 at least 30 Mbps access will be available in about 111,000 new households from these funds and a significant amount of Telekom’s own resources.

These households are located in the so-called white areas where none of the operators had been present with fixed-line internet services or did not offer minimum 30 Mbps fixed-line internet access.

With the use of the funds Telekom will build an access network in almost 600 settlements and install more than 800 kilometres of optical network by the end of 2018. In the case of more than 120 projects the building permit plans have been completed and the construction activity can start in the near future - or in some cases it has started already.

In autumn Telekom will put the new super high speed fixed-line network into operation in another dozen small settlements in the countryside.

As a result of the development the coverage of countryside regions with broadband services will improve, thereby the digital divide is further reduced between less and more developed areas. Newly connected households will be able to enjoy the advantages of broadband internet, thus the quality of life of citizens and the competitiveness of enterprises can both improve.

This year Magyar Telekom will also continue its self-financed developments that were started last year. Thanks to the intense network development of the company 1 million households were given access to at least 30 Mbps of network speed.

The objective for this year is to cover another 270,000 households and the time-proportionate completion of the project is promising: until the end of June more than 150,000 new households have been connected to the new-generation network, one third of which is Gigabit-capable optical access.

In the first half of the year Telekom completed developments in Törökbálint, Érsekvadkert, Kiskunmajsa, Hajdúnánás and several districts of Budapest. The development continues in District XII (the goal is to cover 20,000 new households) and the construction work started in District II as well, where the objective is to cover 15,000 households.
