Digi Postpones Mobile Services Launch
Romanian-registered cable, internet and telecom service provider Digi, winner of the state tender to launch a fourth mobile-phone company in Hungary, is in the testing phase of its service, Index reports.

Digi’s Hungarian launch was originally scheduled for 2017, then was postponed to 2018.
