Net launches broadband

23 Nov 2005

Brazilian cable operator Net Servicos has launched broadband services in Brazil at speeds of up to 8Mbps. The operator revealed earlier this week that it could now sell broadband access to customers who are not subscribed to its cable TV service, after receiving a multimedia communications service licence (SCM) from the regulator Anatel which enables it to unbundle the two services. Net is offering two broadband speeds – 4Mbps and 8Mbps; it also plans to launch VoIP services though not until 2006.
