In a statement, the municipality says that the protocol also provides for the strengthening of mobile network infrastructure, with the installation of 21 new base stations.

For the mayor of Braga, Ricardo Rio, this is an “extremely important partnership, which focuses on a fundamental dimension of what the territory intends to be, namely a space for continuous innovation, competitiveness and technological modernisation”.

“With this investment, we will have access to a state-of-the-art technological infrastructure, without which we would not be able to guarantee conditions for the dynamism of the business fabric in the area or the very quality of life of citizens, since telecommunications are now part essential goods”, he stressed.
