Argentinean cableco Telecentro has launched triple-play voice, video and broadband services in greater Buenos Aires, reports BNamericas, quoting a report in local newspaper La Nacion. The package includes 68 TV channels and costs ARS166 (USD52) a month. Last September, local telecoms ministry SeCom granted Telecentro area code numbering for its planned launch of telephony services.
Telcos such as former incumbents Telefonica de Argentina and Telecom Argentina have been pressuring the government to allow them to offer bundled services over a single network. Current legislation prohibits telecoms companies from supplying broadcasting services.
