Brazilian telco Sercomtel is launching VoIP and wireless broadband services in Maringa in Parana state, starting 11 November, BNamericas writes citing a statement from the company. Sercomtel already offers pay-TV services through its subsidiary in the city SMTV. The operator’s new high speed mobile broadband offer, Supervia, will use pre-WiMAX Canopy technology supplied by US equipment vendor Motorola.
Sercomtel marketing director Claudir Sales de Lima is quoted as saying ‘Before launching the services in Maringa, we performed a study and found a high acceptance of our brand and services locally. We currently have about 4,000 pay-TV subscribers with SMTV and we will first offer bundled services to them. This way, we can control the quality of the services delivered. Later on we will begin the offer to other clients in the city.’ The Supervia bundled offer will include a 260kbps internet connection, voice telephony and pay-TV for BRL98 (USD46.15) per month.
