/ Updated on 24.01.2002

The ICP has named TMN - Telecomunicações Móveis Nacionais, S. A. and Telecel - Comunicações Pessoais, S. A. as companies with significant market power in the mobile telephone and mobile services market.

The ICP is legally invested with responsibility for naming SMP companies in telecommunications, and its nominations are formalized after approval by the national Directorate General for Commerce and Competition. Earlier this year Portugal Telecom was given SMP classification for the interconnection, fixed telephone/service and leased circuits markets.
