Portugal has 10.7 million mobile telephone subscribers
By the end of the second quarter of 2005 there were 10.7 million mobile telephone subscribers, a growth in the total number of mobile subscribers of 0.7 per cent on the previous quarter and of 8.8 per cent on the same period of 2004. The number of pre-paid subscribers - which stood in 8.694 million - grew 12.5 per cent, while the number of subscription users decreased 4.5 per cent, to 2.027 million.
The mobile telecommunication service penetration rate reached 102.3 per cent, maintaining the first quarter's trend and placing Portugal in the group of European Union countries above 100 per cent. This is basically due to users with cards and/or subscriptions from more than one operator.
Regarding voice traffic, around 1.61 billion calls were made during the second quarter of 2005, 6.6 per cent more than in the previous quarter and 6.9 per cent more than in the same quarter of 2004. Mobile subscribers received 1.65 billion calls, 7 per cent more than in the first quarter and contributing to an annual increase of 6.6 per cent.
Of the around 50 average monthly calls that were made in the same period, 34 were made to the network of the operator of origin. The number of written messages (SMS) reached 712 million, a 13.9 per cent increase on the first three months of the year, which mounts to 17.9 per cent if the same quarter of 2004 is considered.
In spite of the quarterly call increase, mobile-fixed connections decreased 0.5 per cent. Vis-à-vis the same period of last year, mobile-fixed and fixed-mobile traffic maintain the decrease trend, which was of 4.4 per cent and 4.3 per cent, respectively.
The mobile trunking service registered 9.46 thousand subscribers at the end of the second quarter of 2005, of which 52 per cent used analogue technology, 27 per cent opted for the CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) system and the remaining 21 per cent used the TETRA (Trans European Trunked Radio System) technology. The number of subscribers to this service grew 16.9 per cent on the previous quarter and 17.6 per cent on the same quarter of 2004.
