Synopsis

The Portuguese mobile market is dominated by the incumbent Altice Portugal, owned by Altice Group and operating under the MEO moniker, although it remains under pressure from the other network operators Vodafone Portugal and NOS. The MVNO market remains largely undeveloped, partly because network operators have their own low-cost brands. Collectively, MVNOs have about 2.1% share of the market.

Population coverage by 3G infrastructure is universal and so most investment has been directed to LTE and to incremental upgrades to network infrastructure. Operators have trialled 5G technologies, with a view to launching commercial services in late 2020.

This report profiles Portugal’s mobile market, providing statistics on network operators, a review of the key regulatory issues, a snapshot of the consumer market, and an analysis of mobile data services.

Key developments:

  • Regulator sets schedule for release of 700MHz spectrum for 5G use;
  • Vodafone achieves 1Gb/s downlink speeds in LTE-A trials;
  • Decline in SMS traffic in wake of messaging alternatives;
  • NOS trialling NB-IoT;
  • M-payment solution developments;
  • Report update includes the regulator’s market data to Q4 2018, telcos’ operating and financial data to Q1 2019, recent market developments.
