    Vodafone Portugal- not as heavy as PT- launched global advertising campaign-using strong tag lines- first operator to introduce 24*7 customer service.

Vodafone Portugal- low pricing in MBB service with many value added services.

Target Customers:

Portugal Telecom – Enterprise and all class of people- specific products for each sector of people.

Vodafone Portugal – for broadcasting targets only enterprises, rest of services- all set of customers.

Network Sharing:

Portugal Telecom- dominant actor- uses the existing infrastructure

Vodafone Portugal- for broadcasting- decide to share with Optimus, third largest operator

Spectrum Acquisition:

Portugal Telecom and Vodafone Portugal -same phase with acquiring the 4g/LTE license-providing 4G services- through fixed and mobile broadband connections.
