Utility tax may end internet and cable service in poorer settlements

A new tax on public utilities could mean the cessation of cable TV and internet service in more than 28,000 households in Hungary’s poorest and smallest settlements. According to news reports, the structure of the public utility tax means that internet providers find it unprofitable to service smaller, poorer communities, which means that many households may suddenly find themselves unable to subscribe to the services.
