Monday 15 February 2016 | 14:31 CET | News
Millicom-owned Tigo Paraguay has confirmed the acquisition of local pay-TV operator TV Cable Parana for an undisclosed amount. TV Cable Parana covers around 40,000 homes and has around 15,000 customers in Ciudad del Este, Paraguay's second largest city. Tigo recently acquired cable TV providers Saturno and Sur Multimedia, based in Fernando de la Mora and Encarnacion respectively, but is still waiting to obtain a licence from telecoms watchdog Conatel for the provision of pay-TV services through DTH technology.
