At least 90 percent of the rural parishes in Portugal should have 4G coverage within five years, based on the proposed 5G licence conditions, according to the president of the National Communications Authority (Anacom), Joao Cadete de Matos. If the terms are confirmed, the winners of the spectrum auction will have to expand the 4G networks to reach 75 percent of the territory of the low-density parishes within three years (2023) and 90 percent within five years (2025). The 4G network will guarantee access to data at a speed of at least 100 Mbps.
