On 28 December 2017, the National Media and Infocommunications Authority (NMHH) imposed a fine on UPC Magyarország Telekommunikációs Kft. due to unauthorised service provision. With a view to the principles of progressiveness and proportionality, the Authority set the fine at HUF 121 million to make sure it substantially exceeds the financial advantage gained from the infringement. Thus the sanction effectively reminds market operators that it is not worth deviating from communications regulations on purpose.
