18 November 2010

Lisbon, Portugal, 18 Nov – Portuguese company Oni Communications by the end of the year plans to open a subsidiary in Spain and another, in the first quarter of 2011, in Angola, the company’s chief executive said in Lisbon.

Speaking to Portuguese news agency Lusa, Xavier Martín said that in Angola’s case entry into the market would be via local partners and added that the company was still in negotiations in Brazil and considering central Europe.

Martín said that the company wanted to have an international presence and that it was focusing on customers and the architecture of systems that are transferable, such as Spain, Angola and Brazil.

“Oni Espanha will be created by the end of the year,” he said noting an investment of 3 million euros that the operator made in 2009 on a fibre optic ring linking Vigo, Madrid and Badajoz, on the border with Portugal.

Oni Communications is one of the main Portuguese fixed line telecommunications operators and offers voice, data, Internet and services to large companies, SMEs, the public sector and telecommunications operators. (macauhub)
