Telecom Argentina, DirecTV widen triple-play reach

15 Jul 2009

Fixed line incumbent Telecom Argentina and satellite TV operator DirecTV have expanded their triple-play service to the cities of Santa Fe, La Rioja and San Salvador de Jujuy, writes BNamericas citing local newspaper Infobae. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, Telecom Argentina and DirecTV signed an agreement to launch a triple-play offering of telephony, internet and pay-TV in April 2009. The package, dubbed SuperPack, was initially only available in the city of Salta, although the telco plans to expand to other areas where its broadband network coverage overlaps with DirecTV’s service footprint.
