Portugal has a medium-sized telecom market with a strong mobile sector and a growing broadband customer base well served by both the cable and DSL platforms. The development of digital-TV services has progressed under cautious regulatory guidance, with a licence for digital-service transmission awarded to Portugal Telecom in mid-2008. The difficult economic conditions have seen operator's domestic revenue fall in recent quarters, with Cogeco selling the flagging Cabovisão in early 2012 for a considerable loss. The market has also seen significant merger activity, with Sonaecom's Optimus division being merged with Zon Multimédia in mid-2013, becoming Zon Optimus. This report introduces the major elements of the Portuguese telecom market, presenting statistics on the fixed telephony sector as well as an analysis of the major market players. Additional information is provided on the key regulatory issues, noting the status of interconnection, local loop unbundling, number portability and carrier preselection.

Zon Optimus rebrands as NOS; PT eliminates special rights granted to the government's golden shares; AR Telecom exits residential market; PT starts process to merge with the Brazilian telco Oi; PT opens Europe's largest data centre; regulator's market data to Q4 2013; telcos' operating and financial data to Q1 2014; market developments to May 2014.
