ZAGREB (Croatia), September 7 (SeeNews) - United Group, a leading multi-play telecommunications and media services provider in Southeast Europe (SEE), said on Friday it is getting ready for the next-generation services by heavily overhauling its customer premises equipment (CPE) base.

After announcing investments of over 600 million euro ($694.6 million) in SEE in the next five years in May, United Group has now issued a request for proposals (RFP) for full range of next generation CPE devices, across all of its markets, all technologies and all network types, the company said in a statement.

The RFP will be available to all eligible manufacturers possessing an operator CP segment for TV and broadband services, worldwide.
