One of the largest cable cooperatives in Argentina, Red Intercable, has reacted positively to the country’s new convergence regulations.

fibra optica“The regulation established by the Ministry and ENACOM [the country’s telecom authority] gives SMEs favourable expectations regarding investments in networks and physical infrastructure across the country,” said Jorge Di Blasio, president, Red Intercable.

According to the company, the decree, which has established a general road map towards convergence, leaves the door open for special considerations in Argentina’s small cities. Indeed, the decree states that ENACOM will define the details of convergent cable TV and telecom services in towns with less than 80,000 inhabitants in which such services are being distributed only by SMEs.

“During the last 30 years, only cable operators have been investing in infrastructure in the country’s inland. In most small cities we have been pioneers in TV and broadband,” added Di Blasio.

According to the executive, the prospects for local cablecos are good, as the decree will drive and support non-speculative investments and will help reduce the digital gap between the largest cities and the rural towns.
