Vodafone is fixated on ADSL2+ in Portugal

First Germany, now Portugal – looks like Vodafone, world’s largest mobile company is pretty serious about becoming a broadband player as well. The company has launched an ADSL 2+ service in Portugal, called Vodafone Casa Duplex ADSL. Interestingly, the company offers those who sign-up an HSDPA modem that they can use for free, just so they can get Internet access while they wait for their 24 megabits per second ADSL 2+ service to be activated. Alcatel-Lucent is providing the gear for this network, which at some point in the near future will offer triple play services.
