Maxcom wants to be first true triple-player

19 Oct 2006

Mexican alternative fixed line operator Maxcom is preparing to launch the country’s first true triple-play service in March 2007, according to BNamericas quoting local daily Reforma. Maxcom already offers a package of telephony, broadband and cable TV in partnership with cable network operator Megacable, but is reportedly ‘at an advanced stage in creating its own TV platform’. The operator has received permission to enter the broadcast market from regulator Cofetel following the recent passing of legislation allowing telephony operators to enter the TV sector, and vice versa, for the first time.
