TELECOMS giant Vodafone has earmarked Portugal as the latest European nation to receive a large investment in ultra-fast broadband.
The UK-headquartered firm yesterday announced a tie-up with Portuguese firm NOS Fibre to deliver cutting-edge internet to 80 per cent of Portugal's households.
Some 4m properties in Portugal will be able to access fibre to the premises (FTTP) broadband.
Vodafone currently delivers FTTP services in Portugal to 2.7m customers through a combination of its own network and reciprocal arrangements with third parties.
Yesterday's deal means around 2.6m homes and businesses will benefit, around half of which will be new to Vodafone.
