Telenor says that it has become the first mobile operator to enter into a partnership agreement with the Hungarian government, although the company's lengthy statement did not elaborate on what the agreement would mean in practical terms.
At the event, Telenor formally opened its Hungarian shared services center, Telenor Common Operation that will offer technology services to the Telenor Group's European subsidiaries. The 450 employees of the new company will provide services in network and IT planning, implementation, management and maintenance for three countries of the region.
In the next few years, Telenor said that it plans to invest about HUF 10 billion in broadband mobile Internet network development to promote wide-spread Internet access, contribute to economic growth and bridge the digital divide for rural communities.
