Sercomtel applies for expanded fixed coverage, paper says

31 Jan 2013

Brazilian regional fixed and mobile operator Sercomtel has submitted a request to the national regulator Anatel, for permission to offer local and domestic long-distance (DLD) fixed telephony services in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, Porto Alegre and Belo Horizonte. According to an unconfirmed report in Teletime, the operator aims to provide fixed telephony services in cities and towns where its existing customers are already known to make DLD calls – therefore evening out any additional cost implications where it concerns interconnection fees. Sercomtel’s head of regulatory affairs Marcus Vinicius Brunetti says that the market of Sao Paulo is the firm’s primary target, but it has no deadline for launching services in the state capital, he said.
