Optimus, Vodafone Portugal to share fibre network

Portuguese cellcos Optimus and Vodafone Portugal have formalised an agreement to roll out a shared fibre network in the cities of Lisbon and Porto. The partnership will enable each company to launch its own independent commercial services.

Optimus commented: ‘This partnership will allow the two operators to achieve commercial offerings under the new framework, in the first quarter of 2011. Optimus and Vodafone believe that the current agreement – under which the networks remain the property of each company – will generate synergies and offer a simplified solution for the realisation of our previously announced partnership’.

Both companies have stated that they are open to sharing the network with other Portuguese operators.
