Vodafone Hungary is a national mobile network operator in Hungary. The company began operations in 1999 after securing the third GSM 900/1800 MHz license of the country.
The company provides 2G GSM services over 900 and 1800 MHz, and in June 2007 launched a 3G UMTS over B1 (2100 MHz). The network was upgraded to HSPA+ in February 2010 and DC-HSPA+ in April 2012. A B8 (900 MHz) 3G service was implemented March 2012.
Vodafone launched its Hungarian 4G LTE service in November 2014 over B7 (2600 MHz) and B20 (800 MHz), initially limited to 75 Mbps. The service was expanded with the introduction of LTE-Advanced in February 2017, adding B3 (1800 MHz), and increasing B7 spectrum width to 20 MHz. April 2018 saw the network upgraded to gigabit LTE-A Pro, with 4X4 MIMO, 256 QAM, and 3C aggregation.
Vodafone Group announced the intention to deploy NB-IoT across Hungary in September 2018.
