Default Broadband

Please could I have some feedback on broadband providers, we are not in Hungary yet but get there in May, any ones to avoid? Is there much choice?

Thanks

It much depends where you are going to be. Cities, towns, villages or outside built-up areas will affect what offerings are available. (outside built-up areas are classified here as external properties and have different (discriminatory) regulations)
Once you can define where you will be then better information can be given.
For example I believe TCOM are offering some 100s of mbs but we are thankful to get 2 mbs. (we are an external property)

We have a contract with Hirsat (Keszthely)for TV and Internet, but that's cable - maybe not possible where you are.
So you might need a satellite dish or LTE.
Tcom has an office in Keszthely in the Alpha-park (near OBI and Interspar).

You should ask the local council if the property is actually outside the village boundary. (most infrastructure for internal properties is governed fixed price, but for external properties it is a %age of the real cost and can be refused)
Does the property have a proper telephone line? This gives an opportunity. Many external properties have a 'mickey mouse' radio telephone that just about manages speak and nothing else - not even fax. Mobile operator service is an option but this will depend upon reception, too poor for us. Our village has a microwave link for external properties but this relies on line of sight for the aerials. You should ask the local council what possibilities there are available.

Totally OT:
If you're near Zalaapáti you have to try the Zöld Elefant - it's been our favourite restaurant around here for more than 10 years, really good!

We are in a remote village and use widenet.hu based in Tapolca. They do not cover your village but maybe you can find a similar microwave system supplier. 10 mb download and 2 mb upload. Great service and not expensive.

My village does not have wired broadband. I currently use a Vodafone 3G wireless WiFi modem which provides 12 GB per month of mediocre quality internet. I am considering switching to Z-Net when the contract expires. Their AIR-HOME package serves much of western Hungary. A receiver is attached to the roof, connecting to an indoor modem. Z-Net has a shop in the Kanizsa Centrum. znet-telekommunikacio-internet-tv-telefon - ZNET-TELEKOMUNIKÁCIÓ

Lots of options creeping out of the woodwork, but don't forget that anything that does not come on a cable (or fibre - you should be so lucky) will suffer the ravages of local hills, tall trees (when its raining) and any other obstructions so you will have to be guided by the local providers as to what they will commit to.

Why not phone Hirsat and ask if they cover your address in Zalapatti. Secondly contact the town hall and ask who what or where is the internet provider for the village. Do not commit to T Com until you have confirmed there is no cabled supplier. You will have to pay line and internet cost. Hirsat for example is only 5000huf for 8mb per month. No more to pay. Also they are laying cable from our village to at least 3 'downstream'' so the coverage improves all the time. Also remember that most cable companies allow you to switch off and not pay if it is only a hoilday home and used part year.
