Telecom Argentina launches contract-free broadband service

28 Jun 2007

BNamericas, quoting a company statement, reports that fixed-line incumbent Telecom Argentina has launched a broadband service that does not require the client to sign a contract to pay a monthly fee, but rather only pay for airtime used. The new service, called Arnet Libre, was launched through Telecom’s ISP division Arnet and has a download speed of 640kbps and includes one email account plus anti-virus and anti-spam services. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, Telecom Argentina had 526,000 ADSL subscribers at the end of March 2007, more than double the 244,000 it had a year earlier.
