In a statement, it says that the violations refer to the telco’s Net Unlimited and Unlimited Net and mobile internet tariff packages.
While Magyar Telekom cancelled the former package in the spring – it is still available to existing customers – it at the same time launched its new Unlimited Net package with the unchanged terms of the cancelled tariff package.
Although the packages promise unlimited internet access in the country, for security reasons they allow the use of certain types of traffic at a much lower rate, distinguishing between individual traffic and applications.
Magyar Telekom also prevented the free choice of devices. NMHH says that in its decision of August 28 it ordered the telco to co comply with EU open internet access rules.
Magyar Telekom disputes the findings in and obligations in its appeal, related to peet-to-peer traffic.
The regulator also notes that it has previously acted to protect net neutrality, citing cases involving Telekom TV Go, HBO Go, Telenor, MyChat and MyMusic.
