The Hungarian government wanted to impose a tax of 150 forints (about 49 euro cents / 62 cents dollar) for each gigabyte of data traffic consumed by each user. The tax would be paid by Internet providers who, in turn, would collect it from citizens. It would be the first country in the world to impose such a measure.

The plan caused such outrage that tens of thousands of citizens took to the streets in protest. Today the prime minister has given up his attempt by canceling the plan.
