Accelerating technology for a sustainable future 

Our targets 
At CETIN, we are passionate about the technology that forms the backbone of our existence. We aim to accelerate the uptake of digital technology. We design, build and operate high-quality networks and provide innovative solutions with no compromise in security. CETIN Hungary is well positioned to enable a rapid and cost-effective transition to 5G networks. The deployment of high-speed connectivity, 4G and 5G technologies allow us to connect as many people as possible, even in areas that might have otherwise been difficult to reach. In the age of digitalization, no one should be left behind. 

Enable 5G coverage by 2027 

Our goal is to contribute to CETIN Group’s target making 5G connectivity available to in average at least 50 % of the population by 2024, and 80 % of the population by 2027, considering all countries where CETIN Group operates. In urban areas, we aim for our 5G network to deliver connectivity speed above 250Mbps. 

Resilient and reliable network 

We aim to further improve network reliability and quality of the critical infrastructures and always actively help authorities in case of natural disaster. We will further strengthen the protection of customer data and increase the resilience of our networks to cyberattack and cyberfraud including regular employee awareness trainings. 

Progress highlights 

Enable 5G coverage by 2027

By the end of 2023, 5G connectivity was available to 39 % of the population.  

Resilient and reliable network 

In 2022, we have implemented the first phase of the full-scope security information and event management system and started to continuously support awareness of all external contractors through cyber security training. In 2023, we have implemented internal Security Operation Centre (SOC), including follow-up procedures for monitoring and responding to incidents. 

Impact stories 

Follow our steps towards sustainability and carbon neutrality 
The SD-WAN networking strategy allows companies to replace outdated firewalls, routers, and WAN optimization appliances with a single appliance. This minimizes hardware requirements and power consumption. In addition, the entire strategy is sustainable and has a high-security profile. The project will be completed later this year.
CETIN Hungary has multi-operator radio access network sharing agreement in Hungary. That means that the mobile network built and operated by CETIN is being used to deliver communication services to the end customers of more than one commercial operator. 
Career choices are mostly decided in high school, and fewer girls choose engineering and technology careers due to a lack of supportive environment, according to research by CETIN Hungary Zrt. The independent, integrated telecommunications infrastructure provider wants to change this by launching a free talent program for secondary school girls in partnership with the Association of Hungarian Women in Science (NaTE).
