MVNO regulation has remained stable since 2007. Last year MVNOs accounted for a market share of 2,6% of mobile voice subscribers and 1,1% of gross revenue. 

In the proposed regulation for the forthcoming 5G Auction, ANACOM introduced a specific provision that requires that both new and incumbent MNOs are required to provide third parties access to their networks under non-discriminatory and fair conditions.

This means this is the right time for MVNOs to enter in Portugal, with the possibility of reaching specific niche markets yet to be explored, as well as new distribution channels.
