Telenor looks to cable alternative

25 May 2010

Broadband TV News reports that Telenor Serbia has started negotiations with local cableco Serbia Broadband (SBB) about leasing its cable network to offer fixed telephony services. Novosti reports that talks between Telenor and fixed line incumbent Telekom Srbije over access to the its network have stalled, leading the regulator RATEL to propose a deal between Telenor and SBB. Besides being the operator of the pan-regional platform Total TV, SBB is the leading provider of cable TV services in Serbia, with a network which reaches some 700,000 homes. It has been technically capable of offering fixed line telephony services for five years but does not have a licence to do so.
