Communications in Hungary


Hungary's postal system is adequate, but relatively slow. Services are improving. Airmail takes three days to one week to reach countries within Europe, and up to one week for the United States.
Post office hours are Monday-Friday between 0800 and 1800, and Saturday between 0800 and 1200.


The international dialling codefor Hungary is 00 36.

The telephone system has been contemporised, digitalised and highly automated. There is now a choice of service providers.


There is a high mobile penetration rate and 3G services are being launched.


Voice over Internet Protocol

VoIP is a new technology which allows users to verbally communicate through their computer. Essentially a telephone call made using the internet, VoIP is becoming increasingly more common in the business world due to its low costs, and easy set-up and maintenance.

Forget installation engineers and phone number changes, as long as you have a broadband connection, you can use VoIP any time, any where.

For businesses, this software is sure to eventually phase out the traditional phonecall. For as low as 4p for local and national calls, the economical potential is vast. With international calls often even less than that, VoIP is perfect if you are prone to long-distance telecommunication, or have offices, clients, partners, etc, overseas. What's more, calls made between VoIP users are typically free all you pay for is the standard internet service.


There are a number of high speed DSL internet service providers. Access
is pretty good and reasonably priced. Many companies use the Internet. E-mail is an increasing means of communication. Many businesses have developed their own websites, often in English and Hungarian.
