Telecommunications in Portugal

   As of 2004-05, Portugal had 4.2 million telephone main lines in use but, in the ownership of cell or mobile phones, the Portuguese were perhaps world record-holders, with 10,362,100 cellphones in use, a rate of about one per inhabitant. Its international telephone system uses six submarine cables, as well as connections with several satellites. Its telephone system is advanced, with broadband, high-speed capabilities. Radio ownership was estimated to be well over 3 million, and there are over 110 radio broadcast stations (both AM and FM). More than 3.3 million television sets are owned.
