Anacom chief warns of asymmetries in telecom coverage

Monday 1 July 2019 | 12:18 CET | News
The head of Portugal's National Communications Authority (Anacom) warned of the "asymmetries" that still exist in the country in terms of internet and mobile network coverage. Speaking to Lusa, Joao Cadete do Matos pointed out that the Azores have a good level of coverage, in comparison with the country as a whole and even at European level. According to Anacom data, coverage of high-speed networks in the Azores is 98.2 percent, but there are several municipalities and several islands that still have a low percentage of coverage and, in some cases, even around 50 percent.
