4 Objectives 4 to utilise spectrum assets in an efficient manner generating social welfare, considering social aspects to the greatest possible extent enhance competitionfoster, encourage and support the extension of broadband wireless coverage in Hungary; foster, encourage and support to enhance broadband penetration in order to allow Hungary to meet the European Digital Agenda targets (100% minimum-speed broadband coverage, the entire European Union to be covered by broadband above 30 Mbps by 2020, 50 percent of European households to subscribe to broadband above100 Mbps by 2020). support and foster the deployment of broadband internet coverage in rural areas currently lacking broadband and to ensure the access to it to the greatest extent possible correlate to RSPP full utilisation of the 800 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz and 2600 MHz bands to achieve sufficient state revenues from the sale of spectrum licences within the context of responsible management of national assets

11 Licence acquisition rules 11 Spectrum cap One applicant may only obtain a spectrum licence for frequencies included within one of Packages “A”, “B” or “C”. In the / MHz frequency band, the total of the frequency range affected by the spectrum licences acquired prior to 1 January 2014 and during this procedure in the 1800 MHz frequency band may not exceed 60 MHz. In the / MHz frequency band, spectrum licences for the basic blocks forming part of packages “D”, “E” and “F” must be obtained following the rules below: the continuity of user blocks is ensured, and the spectrum licence for the basic blocks acquired by the incumbent mobile operator is adjacent to the spectrum licence already held. Applicants already holding a spectrum licence in the 26 GHz band cannot acquire another licence within the band.
12 Roll-out obligation 1. Coverage requirements Geographic Population Objective: Providing coverage in areas with no broadband coverage Reaching the percentages close to the ones defined in the Digital Agenda 2. Deployment requirements Power limits Specific enforcement methodology Objective: defining minimum parameters 3. Obligations are adapted to bands, packages. The national coverage requirement can be met using any of the frequency bands obtained. coverage of at least 96% of the population and at least 90% of national geographic coverage within 60 months. The winning applicant can achieve coverage of at least 15% of population the using any of the existing frequencies. Ensuring coverage within municipal boundaries. For example: If a participant also acquires a licence for either of Packages “G” and/or “H” alongside packages “A”, “B” or “C”, the roll-out obligation shall be fulfilled in the 2600 MHz band.
