Search Inside

Portugal has a medium-sized telecom market with a strong mobile sector and a growing broadband customer base focussed on the delivery of fibre-based services. The country shows signs of emerging from several years in which it suffered from poor economic conditions resulting from the GFC of 2008 and 2009.

While the economy is showing slight improvement operators’ domestic revenue is still under strain. During the last few years pressure on operators has prompted considerable ownership changes. Cogeco sold the flagging Cabovisão in early 2012 for a considerable loss, while Sonaecom’s Optimus division was merged with Zon Multimédia in mid-2013, becoming Zon Optimus before being rebranded as NOS in 2014. The incumbent Portugal Telecom, following a poorly managed link up with the Brazilian telco Oi and a disastrous investment in a failed bank, was sold to Altice Group, a deal which also saw Altice obliged to sell the cableco Cabovisão as well as Oni Telecom.

This report introduces the major elements of the Portuguese telecom market, presenting statistics on the fixed telephony sector as well as an analysis of the major market players. Additional information is provided on the key regulatory issues, noting the status of interconnection, local loop unbundling, number portability and carrier preselection.

Key developments:

New cable to link Portugal with Brazil; PT announces plan to replace copper network with FttP by 2020; NOS avoids route to DOCSIS3.1 in favour of fibre; regulator decides not to impose regulations of PT’s fibre infrastructure in uncompetitive areas of the country; PT revenue recovers in Q4 2016 under Altice Group ownership; PT opens Europe’s largest data centre; report update includes the regulator’s market data to Q4 2016, telcos’ operating and financial data to Q4 2016, recent market developments.
