Altice Portugal and Huawei sign 5G partnership, BT says Huawei not good

Staff Writer |
Huawei has partnered with market-leading Telecommunications Operator Altice Portugal to sign a memorandum of understanding committing to the development and implementation of 5G services in Portugal.

Under the plan, both companies will explore potential new and innovative applications using 5G technology in a live testing network environment.

This partnership represents a key step in the process towards Altice PT’s plans to prepare for a commercial launch of 5G service in Portugal next year.

Altice PT’s services will use Huawei equipment and software as a natural evolution of the already existing 4G network footprint in Portugal.

5G will provide operators with improved access to mobile broadband networks, supporting reliable and low latency communications for both consumers and devices.

Britain's largest mobile provider BT revealed it was stripping the equipment of China's telecoms giant Huawei from its core 4G cellular network after similar moves by the United States and New Zealand.
