Internet tax protests


After mass protests last weekend Viktor Orban's government has suspended their intentions to tax Internet usage.

The prime minister declared that “This tax in its current form cannot be introduced” and decided to cancel any plan to introduce it as it is. Last Sunday thousands protested and a decision was taken to cap the tax at 700 forints (1.78 GBP) a month for individuals and 5000 forints (12.71 GBP) for companies. However, the decision didn't mollify them much and it was finally decided to day to remove any plans, at least, not until it is well planned and discussed.
