Despite some consolidation among players in recent years, the Portuguese mobile market remains dominated by the incumbent, operating as Meo, and by Vodafone and NOS. With near universal 3G coverage, during the last two years most investment has been directed to LTE and to incremental upgrades to network infrastructure. Meo was the first operator to launch commercial LTE services, in early 2012. The MVNO market remains undeveloped, though network operators have their own low-cost brands.

This report profiles Portugal's mobile market, providing statistics on network operators, a review of the key regulatory issues, a snapshot of the consumer market, and an analysis of mobile data services such as SMS, Push-to-Talk and mobile TV as also developments in technologies and their adoption among consumers.
