By extending this agreement, the Euskaltel Group enters the Catalan market for the first time, where the majority of RACC members are located. Furthermore, the Euskaltel Group has drawn up an expansion plan to enter new markets during 2019, where it has a high penetration capacity thanks to its experience and proven model. The leading convergent telecommunications group in the north is currently expanding into Navarre and will soon be moving into Leon, Cantabria and La Rioja as well, joining the Group?s existing markets in the Basque Country, Galicia and Asturias.
The Euskaltel Group is Europe’s most advanced telecommunications operator with regards the HFC 3.1. fibre network and this, alongside the best WiFi experience, guarantees the highest level of competitiveness in the long-term. The leading convergent telecommunications group in the Basque Country, Galicia and Asturias combines the best advanced products and services with high levels of efficiency, winning the trust of customers to become their go-to telecommunications supplier and positioning the group as Europe’s industry leader.
Following the signing of the agreement, Xavier Pérez, CEO of RACC, stated: “We believe that Euskaltel’s quality technological and customer service makes it the perfect partner for expanding the telecommunications services offered to our members. This alliance enables RACC to strengthen its solid commitment to households, providing a full range of services that currently include insurance, emergencies, repairs and renovations and which will now extend to convergent communications services with RACCtel+”.
Francisco Arteche, the Euskaltel Group’s CEO, announced: “Firstly, we are very pleased to be offering our services to the Catalan market and to have reached a strategic agreement with a leading Catalan company of the standing, quality and solvency of RACC. We are sure that the agreement we have signed with RACC today will be extremely positive for both companies and their members and customers, who will be able to access the full range of convergent telecommunications services under competitive terms”.
