US company DSLi gets green light for Vox service

26 May 2004

US-based broadband telephony services provider DSLi has been given the go ahead to roll out fixed line services under Long Distance Fixed Switched Telephony Service (STFC) licences in four Brazilian states by the industry watchdog Anatel. DSLi’s local units Vox 3 Brasil Comunicaçoes and Vox Comunicaçoes will operate the services, with the former providing local, DLD and IDD telephony to Brasilia, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo and the latter offering local and national long-distance services in Rio Grande do Sul. The US company says its Vox units will allow corporate customers to cut their monthly bills by between 30% to 40%.
