At a time when the launch of the fifth generation of the mobile network (5G) in Portugal is clearly delayed, the Autoridade Nacional de Comunicações (Anacom) is evaluating potential situations of conflicts of interest in the 5G auction, the regulator told Jornal Económico ( JE). At stake is a partnership between Ubiwhere, the company hired by Anacom in March to create the platform where the 5G auction will take place, and Vodafone Portugal, as JE reported on 23 April.
According to the contract signed with Anacom, available on the Base Portal, Ubiwhere has assumed the “commitment of honor” that “does not maintain, nor will it maintain, directly or indirectly, any contractual relationship or relationship, remunerated or not, with companies, groups of companies or other entities receiving Anacom's regulatory activity that may give rise to conflicts of interest in the provision of services covered by this contract ”.
