NPlay Southern Cone 2021

Ambrosini pledged to guarantee equal rules in municipalities

The head of Enacom, Claudio Ambrosini, assured that government seeks that local states unify criteria to give a horizon of predictability to ISPs, SMEs and telecommunication cooperatives that demand authorizations to provide services.

Faced with observations made by numerous spectators on the third day of NPlay Southern Cone 2021, the official declared that “the president (Alberto Fernández) and the chief of Cabinet (Santiago Cafiero) are concerned about equality in terms of demands from the municipalities. The bottleneck is a concern and the game rule change has to end”.

The head of the regulatory body, who in his speech reviewed the policies developed by the entity to bring connectivity to populations throughout the country, made himself available to companies: he even asked them to formalize all their claims to his personal email address.

The complaints from the audience focused on the delivery of NRCs - a total investment of US$3.050 billion under the current board of directors - and approval of licenses - 135 granted.

Pure OTT allows the operator to have an independent product to sell not only to the end user but also to ISPs that do not have their own TV services. DirectvGo is so far the only one of this category available in Argentina, although Telefónica is expected to launch a similar strategy soon with Movistar Play. However, it still has to motivate the use of the platforms and alliances with international production companies, which seems to be the most effective way.
