Cordia unit awarded VoIP licence in Brazil

8 Jul 2008

Cordia, a global communications company which provides traditional CLEC services and VoIP telephony, says its Brazilian subsidiary Cordia Comunicacoes has been awarded a multimedia communications licence by the telecoms regulator Anatel. The concession will enable Cordia Comunicacoes to provide a range of voice and data services in the country. CBR Online quotes Cordia president Peter Collins as saying: ’The licence allows us to provide voice, data and other value added services over our own network, reducing our reliance on others and reducing costs associated with selling another carrier’s service.’ He went on to say that the licence award would allow the newcomer to plan a full commercial launch backed by an increased telemarketing and retail sales campaign.
