Matáv assistance to 131 local authorities

Budapest, December 1, 1999

Tens of thousands of Hungarian citizens were hit by floods early this summer. MATÁV has offered to cancel the September telephone bills up to a sum of HUF 100 000 for the local authorities affected by this natural catastrophe.

The heavy rains and the subsequent floods and high inland waters dealt a serious blow to tens of thousands of Hungarian citizens. MATÁV, as a responsible corporate citizen, cannot afford to remain a passive onlooker of this critical situation.

It has decided to cancel the September telephone bills of the municipality offices of 131 localities (in Zala, Somogy, Komárom-Esztergom, Fejér, Tolna, Baranya, Bács-Kiskun, Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok, Hajdú-Bihar, Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén, Heves, Nógrád and Pest counties) up to a maximum amount of HUF 100 000 per authority.
