Tucumán BBS warns about Telecom concentration in the province

For Augusto Parra, manager of the company, "Tucumán evolved a little, we are 6 or 7 formal Internet providers, we have 100% of the province covered and we live in a state of real competition". But he warned that in the province, Telecom has 100% of the ADSL and has a plan to convert its networks to FTTH in the next two years. "I feel we are unprotected, we have been fighting for a long time to maintain our networks, the situation is worrying. I do not know how competition is guaranteed in a concentration scenario. But I think there have to be playing field", he finished.
