Chello supplies high-speed access, local-lingo portals

AMSTERDAM — United Pan Europe Communications has announced that its broadband Internet service Chello now has more than 500,000 subscribers across Europe.

Roughly 200,000 are in Holland; the rest are scattered across Norway, France, Sweden, Austria, Belgium, Hungary and Poland.

Chello provides high-speed Internet access as well as local language portals with local, national and international content. Chello said it had been signing up about 6,000 customers per week over the last six months.

The head count comes on the heels of UPC’s confirmation that its television channels business will be cut back.

Sport1 will close by year end, and Innergy, the alternative lifestyle channel, is is also likely to close.

This has fed investor worries about the cash-strapped company’s intended but delayed hard rollout of its digital TV services.
