Tuesday 27 February 2018 | 15:26 CET | News
Altice Portugal announced that 99.5 percent of its clients affected by the October fires have had their services restored, reports Lusa. The company added that most of the unresolved connections are due to the inability to contact several customers in these areas, for various reasons, such as seasonal or weekend housing, emigrant clients or customers who have not yet accepted the proposed appointment with Altice Portugal to replace the service.
