The Hungarian telecommunications regulator, NMHH, has fined Magyar Telekom around EUR 250.000 for unlawfully launching a new product named ‘Flip Home’ (a triple play service) and failing to make necessary improvements to the product.

The regulator said that it had launched an investigation into the product 10 days after its launch on 16 May 2017, and had concluded that Magyar Telekom had failed to comply with the basic principles of transparency, equal treatment, cost orientation, fee control and access. Improvements made to the disputed product on 28 May 2017 had been insufficient, according to the regulator. In particular, the NMHH accused Magyar Telekom of failing to make the product available to other providers.

Although the NMHH says the decision is final, Magyar Telekom can ask for it to be reviewed in court.
