Polandís second largest cable operator Vectra has acquired analogue cable networks in the city of Bydgoszcz and five nearby locations from the alternative telco Netia.

They have a combined total of around 6,000 subscribers and will be upgraded as soon as possible in order to provide digital TV and advanced services.

Vectra currently claims to have 773,000 subscribers in 157 towns and cities through Poland.

No financial details about the deal have been provided.

In a separate development, local reports indicate that the Polish competition authority UOKiK expects to make a ruling on UPC Polskaís takeover of Aster within the next fortnight.
