We have recently characterized the q-quadratic convergence of the perturbed successive approximations. For a particular choice of the parameters, these sequences resulted as accelerated iterations toward a fixed point.

We give here a Kantorovich-type result, which provides suffcient conditions ensuring the convergence of the accelerated iterates.
