Altice UK (MEO) asks for “responsibility” during confinement

Alexandre Fonseca, head of Altice Portugal

As 4gnews reported, the new state of emergency again gives telecommunications operators freedom to “limit or inhibit” services such as video platforms or audiovisual services for video clubs.

This means that platforms like Netflix, YouTube or HBO may suffer from limitations so that the “integrity” of electronic communications is preserved. Now Altice UK is calling for responsible use by consumers of communications networks during this period.

Altice UK talks about possible “extensions and reinforcement of the network” if necessary

The Lusa agency, source of Altice UK, states that “in view of the expected and progressive increase in traffic on the fixed network, given the situation of isolation and teleworking imposed on the UK’s”, “additional extensions and reinforcement of the network throughout the national territory can be made ”.

“Altice UK calls on everyone to use networks responsibly”

In this vein, the MEO owner asks consumers for responsibility. “With a view to ensuring full and flawless operation, Altice UK calls on everyone to use networks responsibly,” says a company source led by Alexandre Fonseca.

It is also mentioned that Altice “is in permanent contact with the Directorate-General for Health (DGS), following the guidelines and recommendations of the competent entities, strictly maintaining its contingency plan”.

There is a promise that the company will do everything to “ensure that communication networks and services are up to this challenge”, something that other operators must also ensure. Remember that during the confinement, in 2020, services like YouTube or Netflix had their maximum resolution limited, something that can also happen this time.
