Altice Portugal has decided to suspend "all institutional relations other than those required by law" with the National Communications Authority (Anacom), reports Lusa. At issue, according to a statement from the operator, is the regulator's recent announcement that telecommunications prices in Portugal compare unfavourably with prices elsewhere in Europe. Anacom claims that telecommunications prices in Portugal rose by 6.5 percent between the end of 2009 and October 2020, while in the EU they fell by 11 percent, based on Eurostat data.
