January 23, 2020

One of Mexico’s leading broadband and Cable TV providers, Gigacable, has selected Telia Carrier’s IP Transit and backbone services to provide dedicated Internet access to its consumer and enterprise businesses in Mexico. The partnership will give Gigacable access to Telia Carrier’s global network, supporting consumer demand for the increasing need for scalable, high performance connectivity in the Mexican market.

Gigacable is the first broadband and cable TV provider to deliver a 100 per cent digital, interference-free broadband services in Mexico. Gigacable also offers the most extensive programming in the region.

“As one of the leading broadband and cable TV service providers in Mexico, tapping into Telia Carrier’s IP backbone enables us to deliver advanced solutions and robust networks,” said Jose Alfredo Mercado, General Manager of Gigacable. “Working with Telia Carrier assures both our business and consumer subscribers a direct secure connection to Internet access with lower latency as well as more capacity than they need to grow.”

“We’ve seen a huge demand in Mexico for our IP Transit and Cloud Connect services, and have many customers in the region, including mobile operators, local access providers, and ISPs, amongst others,” said Luis Velasquez, Mexico business manager, Telia Carrier. “Up until recently, ISPs and operators in the region have had limited options to help them meet their subscribers’ needs. With our formidable IP backbone, Telia Carrier can directly serve those mid-size ISPs, looking for higher-bandwidth solutions that will enable them to deliver better services and cloud connectivity to the Mexican market.”
