Altice Portugal promises full fiber optic coverage in Madeira by the end of 2022 – Telecommunications
Altice Portugal’s fiber optic network in the Autonomous Region of Madeira will reach 97% by the end of 2021, guarantees the telecommunications company after closing five new investment protocols. The company led by Alexandre Fonseca promises to continue investing in the island until reaching “virtually full coverage by the end of 2022”, it said in a statement.
Over the past four years, more than 35 million euros have been invested in the network, “which positions Altice Portugal as the largest investor in technology and communications at the service of Madeirans”. The operator maintains the commitment that it says has already been materialized in areas such as innovation, infrastructure, health and social responsibility. The protocol was signed by Alexandre Fonseca and the President of the Regional Government of Madeira, Miguel Albuquerque.

The protocols, which mark the 25th anniversary of the arrival of MEO’s mobile network in Madeira, were closed with the Municipal Councils of Funchal, Santa Cruz, Ribeira Brava and Câmara de Lobos, as well as the inauguration of the new mobile website to serve the people of Tábua village in Ribeira Brava.
Altice also highlights the company’s commitment in the health sector to share its know-how with the medical community and the people of Madeira. A Memorandum of Understanding was thus signed with the Regional Secretary for Health to form a working group to find solutions in the areas of telemedicine, procedural and administrative simplification and digitization. “Our commitment to Madeira is to continue to be a solid partner in innovation and guaranteeing access to the best infrastructure as an engine for generating value for Madeiran companies and populations”, said Alexandre Fonseca.
It is also mentioned that the visit of the Executive Committee of Altice Portugal to Madeira reinforces the Company’s commitment to its six strategic axes: Investment, Innovation, Proximity, Quality of Service, Social Responsibility and Sustainability “contributing to ensure excellent connectivity and promote continuous improvement of the experience of its customers across the continent and islands”.
