3 Jun 2009

Argentine fixed line incumbent Telecom Argentina and regional telecoms operator Telpin have launched joint telecoms services in the city of Tandil, writes BNamericas, citing Telpin general manager Dario Oliver. The two companies have invested around ARS4.5 million (USD1.2 million) in the deployment of a hybrid copper and fibre-optic next-generation network (NGN) to provide voice and broadband services to a potential 25,000 households in the city. The partnership follows an agreement signed by Telecom Argentina and Telpin in 1999. The duo have already launched services in Necochea, Carilo, General Madariaga, Santa Teresita and San Clemente, with plans to launch in the city of Azul by end-2009 or during the first quarter of 2010, subject to government approval.
