The Polish alternative carrier Dialog has thrown down a gauntlet to other providers of broadband internet services, including the incumbent telco TPSA and leading cable operator UPC.
Gazeta Prawna reports that the company, which is backed by KGHM, will launch a 1 Gbps service tomorrow (September 1) that will initially be available on a trial basis, starting in the cities of Wroclaw, Lodz, Bielsko Biala and Lubin. To receive it, subscribers will have to sign a one-year contract and pay PLN59 (€14.8) a month. Separately, Dialog has introduced a number of options of receiving its services. Its digital offer currently consists of 42 channels, to which can be added 32 thematic services and Canal+ or HBO packages, internet access at up to 20 Mbps and a VOD library consisting of over 800 titles.
