Vodafone Portugal will have to pay more than EUR 1 million to Meo for the unauthorised use of posts for connections to customers' homes, reports Jornal de Negocios. This figure is the result of Anacom's decision in favour of the Altice Portugal unit in its litigation with Vodafone, according to daily i, which did not reveal how it calculated this value. Vodafone failed to notify Altice of the use of its poles as of August last year.
