Lisbon, Portugal, 24 Sept – Portuguese telecommunications operator Oni announced it plans to set up a local company in Angola in the first quarter of 2010 and is looking at moving into the Brazilian market by acquiring a telecommunications sector company.

“We are considering having a local operation to provide services to large companies in Angola. I expect that it will be launched in the first quarter of 2010, with projects for integration of telecommunications services and equipment,” the chief executive of Oni, Xavier Rodriguez-Martín told Lusa.

The CEO explained that of his customers in Portugal, 100 also operated in Angola, and thus the operator had felt the need to accompany them in that market.

In Brazil Oni is considering acquiring a company and is currently analysing specific operations in the IP telecommunications area, with turnover of between 50 and 100 million euros per year. (macauhub)
