History

dstelecom, A HISTORY OF AMBITIONS AND CHALLENGES

Despite being a relatively young company, dstelecom is already a reference in the telecommunications sector. By rapidly consolidating its innovative business model and providing a solid value proposition, dstelecom has been able to develop trust with its customers and partners.

In less than a decade, dstelecom has implemented a model to access its fiber optic network which is neutral in terms of each customer’s interests; open to all operators; and transparent in information sharing; allowing each of our clients to operate in the network with confidence, as if it was their own.

Our value proposition solidity results from high-level demands in choosing technologies to build the network and developing operation processes. Together this has guaranteed availability and service levels comparable to most demanding and best practices in the sector.

Finally, dstelecom has built unwavering trust with clients and partners, resulting from thousands of interactions over the years between our team's professionals and client operator organizations, ensuring network sharing processes in a highly competitive scenario.

Despite the robust results already achieved, dstelecom's history has been marked not only by tremendous ambition to innovate with a collaborative model of shared networks in such a competitive sector, but also by the numerous technological, structural and strategic challenges that have been overcome. Our history is summarized and presented chronologically in the attachment.

Over the next few years, we will spare no effort in continually propagating a wave of social and economic modernization leveraged by developing telecommunications, and thus continuing to enrich the company's history.
