Zon says PT is blocking customer moves

21 May 2008

Portuguese cable operator Zon Multimedia is claiming that the country’s dominant fixed line operator, Portugal Telecom (PT), is delaying customer requests to port a fixed line while keeping their original number. A report from local newspaper Jornal de Negocios quotes Zon’s CEO, Rodrigo Costa, who says his firm is receiving complaints from customers who are having difficulty migrating their connection. Zon, which was a subsidiary of PT before being spun off last November, has complained to regulator Anacom over the issue.
