Mauritius Telecom is seeking 1,000 subscribers each month for its IPTV service My.T, following the deployment of fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) technology.
The IPTV service passed the 100,000 subscriber mark in December 2014, in the island nation of around 340,000 TV households, according to Dataxis.
Mauritius Telecom's FTTH deployment started in 2013 with an investment of US$ 150 million. At the end of December 2014, there were 15,515 subscribers to broadband Internet, 820,000 to mobile and 362,000 to its fixed line services, said CEO Sherry Singh.
Mauritius became one of the first African markets to launch an IPTV service in 2006. It also has 4G services based on LTE, providing data at up to 100Mb/s.
Mauritius Telecom has been partially privatised with France Telecom/Orange holding a 40% interest in the operator.
