Cablemás receives nine fixed line licences

15 Feb 2007

Mexican cable operator Cablemás has been awarded fixed line telephony concessions in nine cities, writes BNamericas citing a company statement. The nine concessions add to the 13 that the country’s communications and transport ministry SCT granted the company in July 2006. The concessions allow the company to add telephony to its portfolio, completing a full triple-play offering with its video and internet services. The firm does not yet have a date for its voice rollout, and will not disclose which cities the licences pertain to until it reaches interconnection agreements, Cablemás’ budget and investor relations manager Marilyn Billot told BNamericas.
