Vodafone's fibre network reaches 2 mln homes in Portugal

Wednesday 23 September 2015 | 13:59 CET | News
The CEO of Vodafone Portugal Mario Vaz said that the operator will have invested a total of EUR 500 million in Portugal over a two-year period by 2016, most of which is going into the fibre network. The network already reaches 2 million homes and should end the year with 2.1 million. Vodafone also has a network investment sharing agreement with PT Portugal, for 800,000 homes, that expires in November and will be reviewed. The continuation will depend on what the parties decide to do, since Portugal Telecom has a new shareholder, he said.
