CrossFone plans BA triple-play

6 Jul 2007

BNamericas reports that Argentine voice-over-internet protocol (VoIP) operator CrossFone expects to launch triple-play voice, data and TV services in the capital Buenos Aires in the fourth quarter of 2007, quoting local daily Infobae. The company is currently installing equipment from US vendor Cisco and hopes to launch a residential ADSL service covering around 120 blocks later this month. Triple-play will initially be available in a limited area of Buenos Aires and future expansion will depend on demand for the service, said CEO Roberto Castro. The company launched IP telephony services last year and aims to end the next fiscal year, on 31 July 2008, with 20,000 clients compared to its present tally of 4,000. The company has around 12% of all IP lines deployed in Argentina, according to the press report.
