Telia telly has 200,000 viewers

18 Sep 2007

Swedish telco TeliaSonera has signed up 200,000 subscribers to its IPTV services, after doubling its number of users since May. Aiming to encourage further take-up, last week it launched the Telia Smart all-in-one communications gateway, which equips a user’s household telephone jack with a single box providing broadband internet access, digital broadcast TV over ADSL, IP telephony, a built-in wireless network and a firewall. TeliaSonera also reported that its video-on-demand (VoD) services are proving popular, with film rentals nearing 1,000 per day in July. TeliaSonera says that it has upgraded exchanges covering 2.5 million households to receive IPTV services.
