24 Apr 2007

BNamericas reports that Argentine cable operator Canal 5 Video Comunicación has signed an alliance with compatriot telecoms infrastructure provider BroadBandTech (BBT) to help it launch triple-play services. According to a company statement, BBT will deploy infrastructure enabling Canal 5 to add broadband and telephony services to its cable TV offering. The cableco plans to launch its first triple-play package in the city of Daireaux in the Buenos Aires province, although it did not indicate when. BBT, which started operations in 2001, has alliances with 15 cable operators with a presence in 25 cities across Argentina, and expects to sign more cooperation deals and expand triple-play services to new locations later this year
