Altice calls Anacom a 'destabilising' factor

Monday 4 March 2019 | 14:34 CET | News
The executive chairman of Altice Portugal, Alexandre Fonseca, has accused the National Communications Authority (Anacom) of being "a destabilising factor" and said that the regulator's decisions may "jeopardise the investment" the operator is making in Portugal. Speaking to Lusa, he claims that the sector lost around EUR 2 billion of revenue in the last decade although regulatory fees increased in the same period. Fonseca described the Portuguese regulatory environment as "hostile to growth and development of products and services by operators".
