Types of coverage
2G You can use basic Internet functions with the 2G network in most places within Hungary. 2G is mainly recommended for sending e-mails, and browsing on your phone. Telenor provides more than 97% 2G geographical coverage.
3G Our 3G Hipernet network enables you to use the Internet without compromises if your location has coverage. It is suitable for using the Internet both on your phone and at home.
4G In areas with Hipernet 4G coverage you can take advantage of the highest-quality Internet services. You can view HD images and watch HD videos, download large files within seconds, or play online games. The 4G network is also known as LTE.

Outdoor and indoor coverage
Since buildings reduce indoor signal strength, indoor coverage comparable in quality to outdoor coverage is only available in a smaller area as shown on the map. Indoor download and upload speeds are slower than outdoor download and upload speeds for the same area, as indicated by the reference figures in the explanation.
What factors influence speed?
There are some factors that may affect the Internet speed available at your location:
- The type of network coverage (2G, 3G or 4G).
- The distance from the nearest base station. The further you are from this, the weaker the signal strength will be.
- Whether you are indoors or outdoors.
- The structure of the building. Thick walls (concrete, brick) for example can slow down the Internet speed.
- The number of people using the mobile network at the same time in a given area.
- The weather. Rain or storms, for example, can interfere with access.
- The terrain. Thick forests, hills and valleys may limit access.
What can you do to enjoy optimum coverage?
- Select your location carefully in terms of terrain, wall thickness etc.
- When indoors, use a Wi-Fi router: Locate the access point with the best signal strength, and connect your devices to the Internet via Wi-Fi to enjoy the fastest speed.
- Use a 4G-enabled device and select a tariff or service package offering the right download and upload speed for your needs.
What speed can you expect?
Different data transmission technologies provide different download and upload speeds.
Speed also depends on the tariff package used.
Choose a tariff package offering a faster speed so that you can always enjoy the fastest speed available in the area.
Definitions of service quality parameters
Offered bandwidth: the theoretical data transmission speed upper limit (for uploading and downloading) offered by the Operator for Internet access at the given subscriber’s access point at any time of the day and at any outdoor location within the broadcast (coverage) area (specified in Mbps).
The download and upload speeds for the bandwidths offered by the Operator for the various data transmission technologies are as follows: 2G: 0.24/0.24 Mbps; 3G: 0.38/0.38 Mbps; HSPA: 14.4/1.8 Mbps; HSPA+: 21/5.76 Mbps; HSPA+DC 42.2/5.76 Mbps; 4G/LTE: 150/50 Mbps.
The offered bandwidth included in each tariff package or supplementary service may differ from the speeds above. For more information, please refer to the description of the tariff package or supplementary service in the Tariff Schedule (Annex 1/A and 1/B to the GTC) The availability of the offered bandwidth depends on the availability of the network technology providing the service at the given location, the availability of devices (e.g. phone, suitable SIM card) supporting the technology and the network load at the given moment.
*Expected speed: The expected speed values on the coverage map are estimates based on measurements made by Telenor. They are average figures for reference purposes only, and may vary according to the coverage conditions of the given area and the number of users. No warranty is provided for the given speed values.
Guaranteed speed: the minimum data transmission speed (for uploading and downloading) that the Operator agrees to provide for Internet access at the given subscriber’s access point at any outdoor location within the broadcast (coverage) area (specified in Mbps). Upload and download speed guaranteed by the Operator for all data transmission technologies: 0 Mbps.
