Algérie Télécom Satellite (ATS), a subsidiary of Algérie Telecom is aiming to introduce a triple play service which will include internet, telephone, and (video-on-demand) VOD service. ATS is planning to offer this pack with the help of a digital modulator loaded with high-speed internet, OTT, and TV channels.
ATS wants the packs to be locally produced for cost-effectiveness. ATS President and CEO, Mohamed Anouar Benabdelouahad, quoted, “This project aims to provide a service dedicated to individuals through the recently launched Algerian telecommunications satellite, Alcomsat-1. The acquisition of a pack of ATS allows the consumer to have only one antenna with added value.”
