Telma unveils new 20Mbps DSL service for businesses


Telecom Malagasy (Telma), Madagascar’s monopoly provider of fixed line telecoms services, has announced the launch of a new high speed fixed broadband service which it claims significantly increases the downlink rates on offer to business subscribers. 

According to L’Express de Madagascar, the telco’s new ‘ADSL Pro’ service will provide download speeds of up to 20Mbps, and Telma CEO Patrick Pisal Hamida was cited as saying that the new product would ‘perfectly meet the expectations of professionals, [and] their growing needs for … internet browsing and large file sharing’.

Residential subscribers too look set to benefit from improved connection speeds, with Telma also unveiling a new bundled service which includes DSL-based broadband at download speeds of up to 8Mbps; the package also included fixed and mobile voice and satellite TV.
