Fibertel's licence cancellation overturned

27 Sep 2010

An Argentinean court has suspended a government resolution ordering Grupo Clarin to stop providing internet services, writes TelecomPaper. The court has suspended the execution of the Ministry of Communications’ Resolution No. 100, dated 19 August, under which the government cancelled Fibertel’s ISP licence. The government claimed Fibertel’s licence had expired and gave its owners – Grupo Clarin – 90 days to terminate the internet service provider’s operations. The government said Fibertel’s million-strong broadband subscriber base would have a month to switch ISPs.
