Entone, Inc., a leading provider of IPTV home connectivity solutions, today announced that its award-winning Hydra HD™ IP video gateway has been chosen by Valley TeleCom Group for their IPTV service rollout.
Valley Telecom Group delivers advanced digital telephone, Internet and IPTV services to its customers in Arizona and New Mexico.
"We have always been proud of our commitment to providing high quality communications services to our local communities," comments Jeremy Graves, COO at Valley TeleCom Group. "Entone's Hydra enables us to offer advanced IPTV services without extensive in-home rewiring, thus significantly lowering our operational costs and improving the experience for our customers."
