and Algeria Telecom
announce the launch of SAFIR, the first IPTV service in Algeria. SAFIR is being rolled out on the back of Africa’s largest FTTH fibre optic network and will offer Algeria Telecom broadband customers a compelling mix of advanced digital TV services and a choice of 60 IP-delivered TV channels.
Created using the innovative NetgemTV software and delivered via Netgem’s Set Top Box, SAFIR was implemented in close cooperation with the integration partner SPEC-COM Algérie.
Algeria’s government is making considerable investment into its national telecom infrastructure and broadband networks in an effort to accelerate economic development and build an information, communications and knowledge society.
