Portuguese government considers new DTT migration plan

Tuesday 12 May 2020 | 10:11 CET | News
The Portuguese government has already signalled to Altice the need for a new plan for DTT migration and is "reassessing" the national strategy for 5G in light of the current circumstances, an official source from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Housing told Dinheiro Vivo. However, no schedule has been advanced for a new start to the DTT migration process, which was interrupted in March by the Covid-19 pandemic and which was due to finish by the end of June. The goal of the DTT migration process is to release the 700 MHz band for its use for 5G.
