Fixed high speed network coverage

ANACOM makes available for consultation the list of parishes with access and coverage of fixed high speed networks, using fibre-optic and cable television distribution networks1.

This information allows the user to know whether a given parish is provided with fixed high speed network coverage and what is the level of service coverage in such location: lower than or equal to 1%; between1% and 25%(inclusively); between 25% and 50% (inclusively); and higher than 50%.

The establishment of such a list was based on the following data:

  • Number of cabled dwellings, on 30 September 2014 (data submitted by operators2);
  • Number of conventional private dwellings, per parish (INE, 2011 Census);
  • Information on parishes provided by the Direção-Geral do Território (the Territory General Directorate) - Carta Administrativa Oficial de Portugal (CAOP, Official Administrative Map of Portugal) for 2014.

This information will be updated as new data is submitted to ANACOM by operators.

1 Fixed high speed networks are deployed using fibre-optic (FTTH/FTTB) and cable television distribution networks that use EuroDOCSIS 3.0.
2 Information collected from Cabovisão, Fibroglobal, DST, MEO, NOS and Vodafone. In the specific case of dwellings cabled by Fibroglobal and DST, this indicator was estimated by ANACOM on the basis of information on georeferenced format supplied by those companies.
