Boost for Polish IPTV

The Polish incumbent telco TPSA is to be split into separate wholesale and retail divisions.

The move follows a decision by the countryís Office of Electronic Communications (UKE) and should be welcome news for alternative carriers seeking access to the incumbentís infrastructure.

It is also likely to speed up the rollout of IPTV services, the take-up of which has hitherto been disappointing.

The restructuring of TPSA is likely to take up to two years.
