Lusa - Business News - Cabo Verde: Telecom operator complains of illegal pay-TV services




Praia, Aug.5,2022(Lusa)- Cabo Verde's state-owned Cabo Verde Telecom (CVTelecom) has complained of the loss of customers caused by unlicensed providers of pay-TV service, pointing to the inoperativeness of the regulator, which it also accuses of having an "excessively administrative and intrusive posture.
According to the latest report and accounts, Cape Verde's largest telecommunications group has lost 10% of its pay-TV customers, accumulating a new annual fall that will leave the total number of subscribers of that service at 6,280 by the end of 2021.
"With regard to pay-TV, the segment, for the second consecutive year, experienced a decline in the customer base, although at a much more contained level, as a result of competition from unlicensed providers, a situation to which the group has demonstrated its displeasure to the competent authorities, without, unfortunately, there being any signs of a break with the current framework," the report said.
It added that "despite the difficulties inherent to operating in a market where the mechanisms for imposing licensing and regulation are undoubtedly deficient", the group "remains committed to bringing value to the pay-TV service market, namely by enriching the content grid, launching interactive TV functionalities and bundling TV with the remaining group services".
The group is in the process of merging its three telecommunications companies, fixed, mobile, Internet and pay-TV, and plans to operate with a single company for these four areas.
Despite this scenario, CVTelecom's profits increased by 36.5% in 2021 to over €2.6 million, and for the third year in a row, sales grew again, the report and accounts state.
The group's management once again criticised, as in previous years, the Regulator's "persistence in maintaining an excessively administrative and intrusive posture in the operators' activity".
In a recurring criticism of the actions of the Multi-sector Economic Regulatory Agency (ARME), the administration stated that this posture is "sometimes disjointed from structuring government initiatives for the sector" and "contributed to the maintenance of an unfavourable regulatory climate, increasing the fears of the CVTelecom group about the consequent threats to investment and innovation".
"In 2021, we noted several regulatory interventions which, in the CVTelecom group's view, were in some cases extemporaneous and in others questionable as to their proportionality or relevance in the market context. On the other hand, it is worth mentioning the continuity of a clear non-compliance with certain essential issues for the sustainability of the sector, namely those related to the fight against piracy and illegal content supply, as well as the regulation of the OTTs activity [Over-the-top media service - Service delivering video over the Internet instead of through a multi-system operator], which has contributed to a great loss of value of the communications market, calling into question the adequate profitability of the huge investments made", the board of directors said.
On 31 December 2021, the CVTelecom group had 418 employees, an increase on the previous year, "justified by the need to reinforce the technical areas, to support the new business areas and the growing complexity of the systems".
"However, it is worth noting that the group remains committed to its plan to progressively optimise its workforce, namely through the continuity of pre-retirement programmes and the reinforcement and internalisation of skills in key areas and an extensive Automation and Robotisation programme," the management said.
"In 2021, 19 direct jobs were created, to which 35 were added as service providers, which combined with the number of people who left the company, namely due to retirement or pre-retirement, allowed us to safeguard the stability of the personnel cost structure. For the next two years, it is expected that, in overall terms, there will be a slight increase in the number of employees in service in order to, as mentioned, strengthen internal skills but also to prepare for the generational transition, which will be felt more acutely as of 2024", he adds.
