The Hungarian regulator NMHH and Hungarian Communications Association (MKSZ) have entered into an agreement “in order to more effectively support the development of the electronic communications profession and related activities, and to increase awareness of consumer decision-making”.
According to NMHH, the two bodies will jointly conduct research affecting the communications market, prepare analyses, create professional publications and organise events.
It adds that cooperation with the cable association is not new, since there have been ongoing discussions on communications regulatory issues for some time.
Dr. Zsolt László Szabó, NMHH media market cooperation and research director, said: “Promoting the development of the electronic communications profession and increasing consumer awareness of communications are among the objectives of the NMHH, in which we can achieve results more effectively in cooperation with the MKSZ”.
Ferenc Kéry, MKSZ president, added: “Wired and wireless fixed-line services with a stable technical background and parameters are still essential for those requiring real broadband and affordable services, which is also proven by the fact that we are present in more than 3,400 settlements with fixed-line communication services, with a total of 777,000 subscriptions.
“In addition to representing the interests of our members, we also emphasise improving the reputation of the profession and increasing consumer awareness, in the latter area we are also looking for opportunities and solutions together with the NMHH”.
