Portugal’s fibre-to-the-home market has been highlighted by Fibre To The Home Council Europe as a shining example, growing 186% in one year.
During 2009, the number of subscribers with FTTH grew from 14,500 clients at the end of December 2008, to 41,500 a year later.
The market has a high level of competitiveness, with Portugal Telecom, ZON Multimedia and Sonaecom all offering FTTH.
On February 24 and 25 a conference on fiber optics will take place in Lisbon in which the most recent new applications of this technology will be announced.
