Telenor Hungary is preparing to test NFC payments and loyalty services and is to participate in the Hungarian Mobile Wallet Association's consumer test programme, together with local financial institutions and commercial service providers.
"The State Printing House will be an independent aggregator of the mobile NFC service chain," says Gábor Zsámboki, CEO of State Printing House Plc. "We hope that Telenor's experience gained in the pilot project will confirm the viability of commercial mobile NFC services for the broader public."
"Telenor Group's NFC results indicate that this technology will make daily shopping simpler and also faster in Hungary," says the carrier's Zoltán Takács. "Therefore, we want to make the new payment system available to Telenor customers as soon as possible. Together with the State Printing House and the Hungarian Mobile Wallet Association we'll do our best to create a technology infrastructure framework for the adoption of NFC technology in Hungary."
