Hungarian telecommunications conglomerate 4iG Group has announced the sale of its subsidiary, MIS Omega Mobilhalozat, which owns DIGI mobile infrastructure, to Pro-M, a company owned by the Hungarian state. The transaction, valued at 68 billion HUF, marks a strategic move to rationalize and consolidate 4iG's domestic mobile network portfolio as part of its integration strategy.
