Telecom Argentina testing IPTV

18 Sep 2008

Telecom Argentina is testing an IPTV service among its employees, reports BNamericas citing quotes made by fixed telephony unit director Simone Battiferri in local newspaper El Cronista. Battiferri stated that the company’s regulatory issues department was in talks with the government over the possibility of telcos being allowed to offer triple-play services in the near future. The executive also said Telecom was hopeful that the government would authorise an increase in fixed line tariffs, which have been frozen since 2001.
