@Ariella: Maybe not so good for consumers. Either way, good for Vodafone until the regulators come knocking. I'm surprised there's not more antitrust/monopoly backlash against Vodafone with that kind of market domination.

Altice Portugal
It's amazing how Altice is now becoming a household name. Here in the States they have taken over Optimum. With so many operators talking about FTTH and goals about how many homes they are targeting to reach, it would seem that there is room for not one more competitor. Good, Luck, Altice Portugal!

Re: Easier
Absolutely, fiber is not just east but very cost effective in comparison with copper. Copper is expensive but could be more sustainable in long term.

Easier
I guess fiber is easier to manufacture than copper lines, too. You can find a lot of the ingredients right on the beach, instead of in a deep mine.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
