Altice Portugal continues SIRESP service after contract end

Thursday 1 July 2021 | 17:22 CET | News
Portugal's emergency telecom network SIRESP remains operational, despite Altice Portugal's contract to operate the service ending on 30 June, a company source told Economia Online. The government is still waiting for the Court of Auditors to approve the three new contracts for the provision of services for 18 months, a transitional period during which an international public tender will be organised. However, the old contracts will be maintained until the Court's opinion is issued.
