Details of the new “basic package” expected to be ready in November, Tamás Deutsch says

The new basic package is expected to be cheaper by at least 15% than the lowest rates currently offered by service providers for both mobile and cable internet service. It will be available for people who did not have a mobile internet subscription in the previous 12 months or, in the case of a cable internet subscription, did not have an internet subscription at the given address.

The new package is designed to help people who so far have not had internet access to enter the world of internet users, the paper said. The secretariat is discussing the details of the new basic package with service providers and the proposal is expected to be ready in November, it added.
