More than 10,600 families in the municipality connected to the digital highway until December.
dstelecom is reinforcing the fiber optic network in the municipality of Ponte de Sor, guaranteeing coverage in 98% of the municipality, in a total of around 10,600 homes.
As a result of this expansion project, until December, dstelecom's optical fiber will make its debut in Foros de Arrão and reinforce the network in Montargil, thus reaching all the parishes of this municipality in Alentejo.
With a view to eliminating the barriers of time and space, through the digital highway, the works in progress will allow more people from Sorres to take advantage of the broadband service and benefit from more speed, greater bandwidth and better quality.
Consumers can already check the availability of fiber coverage in their area by accessing dstelecom.pt/rede-e-cobertura or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with their complete address and, ideally, gps coordinates. Alternatively, you can also speak to your telecom operator.
According to dstelecom, this expansion, in line with the purpose of taking fiber optics to locations with lower population density, contributes not only to the fixation of the population, but also to the creation of new opportunities for the region, becoming a motive attraction and thus increasing economic and social benefits.
It should be remembered that dstelecom is a wholesale telecommunications operator responsible for the construction and management of the first and largest multi-operator FTTH fiber optic network in Europe, available to all telecommunications operators.
