Fibroglobal reduced its prices by between 30% and 66%, depending on the type of access, depending on the type of access involved.
ANACOM intervened to encourage more use of the wholesale offers by retail operators to enhance competition and investment. It said that it expected the move to result in better access to competitively priced services for residents in the relevant regions.
