Netia signs Warsaw interconnection agreement with TP S.A.
Mattias Gadd, President and CEO of Netia, said: "We are delighted that the way has now been cleared for Netia to launch local voice services in Warsaw. Warsaw is the center of the country's business life, and is key to our strategy of becoming the provider of choice for corporate and SME markets throughout Poland."
NETIA HOLDINGS is the largest alternative fixed-line telecommunications operator in Poland. Netia has 24 licenses for local telecommunications services in territories covering some 15 million people or approximately 40% of the Polish population. The Company's existing local telephone license territories cover six of the country's ten largest urban areas including Warsaw, Krakow, Poznan, Gdansk, Lublin and Katowice. Netia has also secured the benefit of a nationwide data and IP license to provide data transmission and Internet-based services. In May 2000 the Netia 1 consortium was issued the nationwide domestic long distance voice license.
