Hungarians’ Christmas shopping habits and discount preferences

Yettel has a surprise in store for its consumers this Christmas

According to a recent national survey by Yettel, four out of ten Hungarians intend to buy Christmas gifts online this year, and almost the same number plan to use apps. More than half of those surveyed are looking for vouchers and discounts. For a HUF 10,000 purchase, many consider a HUF 1,000 discount to be a good offer. The mobile operator is now helping them in their gift hunt with surprise discounts in the Yettel app.


Yettel launches the most advanced 5G network for its customers

As part of the strategic partnership between Óbuda University and Yettel, the university’s researchers and engineers have access to the most advanced 5G connectivity available today.
Yettel was the first in Hungary – and a global pioneer – to make standalone 5G technology available to its customers in a public offer. While current 5G networks rely on 4G to set up the connection, the newly launched standalone 5G relies on 5G for all components of the mobile connection using only the frequencies dedicated to 5G. This development brings to fruition many of the benefits of the 5G standard, including a significant reduction in network response time, a further increase in available download and upload speeds and the ability to launch new digital services. Yettel is offering the benefits of standalone 5G first to customers using its home and office 5G services.

Half of the respondents start shopping before December. The most popular gifts are toys, clothes and electronics. Most respondents are also looking for discounts and special offers. The mobile operator has come up with gift ideas tailored to these needs for its Christmas shoppers.
