Magyar Telekom’s view on 800 MHz DD issuesMT supports early availability in an European harmonised approach

Current MBB


  • The number of Mobile Internetsubscribers almost doubled in 2009 to~ 1 million in Hungary.

  • MBB Internet both substitutes and complements Fix BB Internet.

  • MT has ~48% market share in the MBB market, 3G/HSPA outdoor pop. cov~74 %, worry-free flat-rate tariff packages (RelaxNet) are popular

  • Currently, the Hungarian mobile market faces a spectrum scarcity situation below 1 GHz.

  • 800 MHz DD band is appropriate for extending MBBcapacity vs. E-GSM900 or 450 MHz bands.

  • 800 MHz DD band is appropriate for extending MBB coverage and in-house penetration vs. 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz bands.

  • Service capabilities are determined mainly by 3GPP LTE technology (business data, internet access, mobile gaming…)

  • LTE offers enhanced user experience and reduced cost/MBthanks to higher spectral efficiency and better network economy.

  • LTE800 is beneficial for the operatorsand their customers thanks to itscost-effectiveness.

Significance of

the DD band


  • Late availability of the 800 MHz band wouldseriously decrease the benefits of the band, the overall economic effects as well as the band’s attractiveness for MNOs.

  • Excessive frequency usage fees can destroy viability of Mobile Internet BC!

  • 800 MHz DD spectrum should be assigned in a non-discriminatory, objective, transparent and in an European wide harmonised way. 2x10 MHz should be foreseen as minimum spectrum assignment per MNO to enable real MBB services !

  • MT supports comparative bidding over competitive bidding.

  • MT supports the idea of connecting the licensing of 800 MHz and 2.6 GHz spectrum blocks.

  • 800 MHz can balance MNO’s spectrum availabilities below 1 GHzand helps avoiding drawbacks of a possible asymmetric type of E-GSM900 spectrum assignment.



  • Non-civilian ARNS (Aeronautical Radio Navigation Service) in the 800 MHz DD band should be phased-out by 2011

  • The date of 800 MHz band’s mobile use should be brought ahead from 2015 to at least 2013

  • The sooner the availability of 800 MHz spectrum, the higher the positive impact on national broadband infrastructure will be.
