Poland’s leading alternative telco Dialog is reported to have started a short-term triple play trial. It will allow several dozen subscribers the chance to access a combined service consisting of fixed-line telephony, broadband Internet access and an IPTV package of 12 niche channels up until this Friday (June 15). A commercial service launch is expected in the autumn, targeting 20,000 subscribers by the end of the year. It will be only the fourth IPTV operation in the world employing a system supplied by Nokia Siemens Network and include such features as VOD, time shift and a DVR. Wroclaw-based Dialog is wholly owned by KGMH Polska Miedz and its services can be received by over 6 million people. It currently claims over 440,000 customers, with 90,000 subscribing to broadband Internet access.
