Axom Communications and Cable signs one year bandwidth agreement with Airtel

By December 21st, 2014 AT 12:21 PM

Assam based multi-system operator (MSO), Axom Communications and Cable has signed a one year agreement with Bharti Airtel to provide better bandwidth and reach in all the seven north eastern states, where the company operates. “This bandwidth would easily help in connecting all the seven north eastern states. Before the cable TV digitisation starts in full swing in phase III and IV, we have already finished 60-70 per cent of the work in Guwahati,” said Sanjive Narain , Axom Communications and Cable director.

“Out of the six lakh connections, more than 70,000 cable homes have been converted into digital signal even before the digitisation process has started in the state,” he explained. “Fiber network connectivity work is on in other states like Tripura, Nagaland, Meghalaya to name a few,” said Narain.

The company has around 10 analogue headends and one digital headend in total, informed Narain. It should be noted that Assam and other north eastern states are likely to digitise their cable TV homes in the phase III and IV of digitisation.

“Right now the process has not started in the true sense, but the industry is getting ready,” said Narain. With a terrain where cable cannot reach easily, there is a sizeable penetration of DTH in this market.

“We will convert a DTH home into cable TV home by giving a lucrative option to consumers,” he concluded.
