ASIET urges Uruguay to allow Claro to offer pay-TV

Tuesday 27 February 2018 | 11:12 CET | News
The Inter-American Association of Telecommunications Companies (ASIET) has issued a statement urging the Uruguayan government to finally allow the operator Claro Uruguay (America Movil) to offer pay-TV services after a court ruled that its DTH licence is valid. At the end of 2017 the country's civil appellate court accepted the operator's appeal against the Uruguayan regulator Ursec's decision to revoke the DTH licence granted back in October 2008. In its statement ASIET said the government's stance was harming competition in the market as well as Uruguay's image abroad.
