Convergent Services in Argentina, 2018: Ironing Out the Last Few Wrinkles - Featuring America Movil, Cablevision, Fintech, Telecom Argentina, Telefonica, and Telmex - ResearchAndMarkets.com

Convergent Services in Argentina, 2018: Ironing Out the Last Few Wrinkles - Featuring America Movil, Cablevision, Fintech, Telecom Argentina, Telefonica, and Telmex - ResearchAndMarkets.com


The "Convergent Services in Argentina: Ironing Out the Last Few Wrinkles" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

In the last Intelligence Report covering Argentina's ICT sector (March 2017), there was speculation that there would be a merger of multi-service providers Telecom Argentina (News - Alert) and Cablevision, since local investment group Fintech had simultaneously strengthened its positions in the two groups.

A formal merger proposal did indeed come to pass, in July 2017, and was approved by sector regulator Enacom in December, followed by the antitrust watchdog CNDC's blessing in June this year.

This development adds to pressure for rival groups Telefonica (News - Alert) and America Movil to perfect their triple-play offerings, and for congress to pass legislation allowing these two to incorporate DTH service for the Pay TV part of their businesses.

owever, all it has done is increase the tension in a kind of stalemate situation, very similar to that between Telmex (News - Alert) and Televisa in Mexico. Telefonica objects to Telecom-Cablevision having a head start in bundled services, including quadruple play, while the latter argues that Telefonica would be too powerful if allowed to rapidly roll out DTH television services.
