Hungary is 31st in the GCI 2019, up from 32nd last year.
Hungary has improved its performance on quite a number of the GCI indicators. Improvements came from investments in security and fixed and mobile broadband coverage. We also see growing demand this year for app downloads, secured servers, mobile broadband subscriptions, and cloud migration. Overall, Hungary's basic ICT infrastructure and performance in more advanced technologies are both around average levels. Likewise, experience metrics like the e-government user experience, download speeds, and mobile broadband affordability have also improved.
In Hungary, the cloud computing sector is growing, with a small but active collection of companies developing hosted services for end-user customers. Additionally, there is demand in Hungary for the option of using cloud services to run a range of software environments and applications. Hungary has been investing intensively in its fixed network and in mobile technology, allowing the conversion to 4G. The nation accelerated the expansion of fixed networks so that within two years, 1 million more households were able to use broadband.
