Friday 7 October 2016 | 13:38 CET | News
Brazilian regional telecommunications operator Algar Telecom has expanded its activities to the state of Rio Grande do Sul, by opening an office in Porto Alegre, reports Baguete. The arrival of the company in the state is linked to the acquisition of Optitel, a telecommunications company based in Balneario Camboriu and which has a fibre optic network in Rio Grande do Sul. The deal, worth BRL 56.65 million, was signed at the end of 2015. In the state, Algar Telecom will only serve corporate customers, as it does not have a concession to offer services to individual customers.
