GVT offers comprehensive and advanced telecommunications services to markets ranging from large, mature sectors with strong cash-flow generation (such as conventional telephony) to high-growth sectors (such as broadband, Pay-TV using satellite and IPTV technology, Internet services and VoIP). This approach allows the Company to target a broad market, to offer one-stop shopping for all fixed-line telecommunications Internet and Pay-TV services, and helps stabilize its revenues.
