Portugal falls short on target to bury telecom cables

Tuesday 16 July 2019 | 15:32 CET | News
Portugal is behind on its goal of burying 1,000 kilometres of telecom cables in municipalities "with a high degree of danger of disasters" such as fires by the end of this year, reports Publico. The daily reveals that although there is a contract between Infraestruturas de Portugal (IP) and Altice, the goal is far from being achieved: only 10 percent (100 km) of the target has been met.
