As in many other markets in the region, in Hungary the number of fixed-lines, as also fixed-line revenue, has been affected by the changing consumer use of such services and by the trend for fixed-to-mobile substitution. Fixed-line operators have thus looked to fixed-line and mobile broadband services to boost revenue. The economic crisis also affected telecom revenue, though recovery since 2013 has improved spend among consumers and so helped revitalise telecom services revenue. However, financial recovery among telcos has been rendered more difficult by the government's telecom and utility taxes. The attempt to impose a tax on internet data traffic was abandoned in November 2014 following civil demonstrations against it, though taxes on calls and messaging services remain. In late 2015 the government struck deals with Maygar Telekom and a number of other operators under which the telcos will extend super-fast broadband access to underserved areas. For its part, the government agreed not to provide funding to competitors in specific areas where telcos undertook to provide network upgrades.
