Tariffs for PSTN access to the Internet

        Since January 1, 2004, retail tariffs for PSTN access to the Internet are no longer regulated. Since 2002, however, a part of the charge billed to the customer — 30 percent in peak time and 10 percent in off-peak time — must be transferred to ISPs. In case of flat rate Internet access, 13 percent of the fee must be transferred to ISPs. This type of revenue sharing remains in operation under the Act on Electronic Communications. Since January 1, 2004, Internet call origination and Flat Rate Internet Access Call Origination ("FRIACO") services are part of the Reference Interconnection Offer ("RIO") and the prices of these services are also regulated within the scope of the reference interconnection offer (tariffs approved by the NCA).

        On July 1, 2004, we introduced wholesale "bulk minute" packages. These packages allow ISPs to buy 10,000-minute units of wholesale Internet traffic for prices as low as HUF 2.45 per minute for peak and HUF 1.37 per minute for off-peak.
