Mexican cable TV provider 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 is intended to give Gigacable access to Telia Carrier's global network.
"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 Could 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."
Gigacable provides 100% digital broadband services in Mexico.
Telia Carrier expanded into Mexico in the spring of 2018, providing wholesale IP transit, Ethernet, IPX, and Cloud Connect for Internet service providers, content and cloud providers. The company connects 300 points of presence (PoPs) cross Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East.
