Altice Portugal criticizes Anacom over implementation of 5G

Thursday 12 September 2019 | 16:32 CET | News
Altice Portugal has accused the National Communications Authority (Anacom) of putting 5G at risk by proposing a timetable for the implementation of a 5G network with a six-month gap between the mainland and the archipelagos, reports Jornal de Negocios. In a statement, the operator questioned "the seriousness of the schedule proposed by Anacom and the placement of the Autonomous Region of the Azores and Madeira in last place in the migration of the 700 MHz band, given the high probability that such schedule cannot be met".
