The leading Latvian cable operator Baltcom had 14% more broadband internet subscribers this March than in the same period last year.

At the same time, the number of subscribers using built-in TV decoders to receive its digital TV services increased by 33% in March alone, while 13% more were watching HD channels than a month earlier.

Baltcom currently offers internet access at up top 100 Mbps and more HD channels (10) than any other company in Latvia.

Backed by RPAX SA, a company set up by AXA Private Equity Investors and Resource Partners, it has recently attracted investment of 50 million and aims to be become the leading provider of broadband and TV services in the Baltic Republics by 2015.
