Internet a 5€! Altice Portugal quer quer rejeição da proposta da ANACOM

Recently Autoridade Nacional das Comunicações (ANACOM) unveiled proposals for tariffs for the social Internet. ANACOM wants a monthly fee of five euros (6.15 euros with VAT at a rate of 23%) and guarantees 30 GB of internet traffic.

Altice Portugal criticized Anacom’s online social tariff proposal, which it said “does not respect the government’s position” and expects the executive to “speak quickly, rejecting” the regulator’s report.

Operators offered 10 Mbps internet speed and 12 GB traffic

ANACOM has proposed to the government to apply a monthly fee of five euros (6.15 euros including VAT at a rate of 23%) for broadband internet service. In a final decision, approved this week, the regulator increased the minimum monthly cost of traffic for offering a social tariff for broadband Internet access from 12 GB to 30 GB.

Altice Portugal has already commented and expects the government to reject the proposal ...

Unfortunately, it is no longer surprising that Altice Portugal learns about the many Anacom solutions.

The role of this regulator in the last three years has been characterized by decision-making contrary to what is brought to public consultation and what is determined by the government, as well as changes in the rules in the middle of the game.

The proposal that ANACOM has submitted to the government on a social tariff on the Internet “does not include, again, the considerations shared by the operators, and contains significant changes from the version to be consulted, given that during the consultation, the regulator requested a decision on the proposal at a speed 10 Mbit / s and a traffic ceiling of 12 GB, not at a speed of 30 Mbit / s and a ceiling of 30 GB, that is, "three times more than agreed," the same source indicated.

In terms of price, “the value currently offered by Anacom represents a discount of over 65% over market practice, in stark contrast to what is seen in other business sectors and, internationally, in the electronic communications sector, which again demonstrates the role of the regulator in destroying this sector in Portugal ”, - criticizes the company led by Alexander Fonseca.

According to Anacom, the potential population of "beneficiaries of the social tariff for broadband Internet access is about 800 thousand people and will be dispersed throughout the country, and the number of effective beneficiaries may be less than mentioned."

Kazakhstan is preparing to supply oil to Azerbaijan instead of Russia - Oil

In the international oil market, a new adjustment of black gold routes may occur. Kazakhstan is preparing to export its oil via Azerbaijan’s largest oil pipeline to circumvent Russia’s threat to close the Black Sea port of Novorossiysk.

After a Russian court threatened to cut off an oil route through which Kazakhstan exports black gold to the world, Astana is preparing to ship its oil from Azerbaijan’s largest oil pipeline as early as September, sources close to the case say, citing Reuters.

For about two decades, Kazakh oil, which accounts for 1% of the world’s oil reserves, was transported through the CPC (Caspian Pipeline Consortium) pipeline, which was sent to the Russian port of Novorossiysk on the Black Sea, from where the oil was shipped. the rest of the world.

However, in July a Russian court threatened to shut down the CPC pipeline to Kazakhstan, prompting the Astana government and foreign companies operating in the country’s oil sector to reach out to other possible partners to ensure that if Russia ceases to act as a bridge between Kazakhstan’s oil and the world There may be other transportation options.

Thus, one of the sources assured Reuters that the Kazakh oil company Kazmunaigas (KMG) is negotiating with the Azerbaijani side to export 1.5 million tons of oil per year through the Azerbaijani pipeline, which transports raw materials to the port of Ceyhan. , Turkey. The contract is to be signed in August, and oil on this route is to start in September.

However, these agreements may not be enough to ensure that the world receives the same number of barrels of oil from Kazakhstan as before Russia’s possible production cuts.

According to the British agency, this partnership will bring 30,000 barrels of oil per day to countries buying Kazakh oil, which is very small compared to the 1.4 million barrels per day currently transported by CPC.

In addition, two other sources report that Astana is in talks to have another 3.5 million tons of crude oil annually exported via another pipeline to the port of Supsa in the Black Sea region from Georgia starting next year. In a Reuters report, KMG representatives declined to comment on the issue.

Kazakhstan can make a difference in the uncertain future

By seeking to sign these agreements, Kazakhstan can not only ensure its own economic viability, but also ensure that the imbalance between supply and demand for oil on the international market does not worsen.

Oil consumption is expected to rise to 2.1 million barrels a day this year, up 300,000 barrels from the previous forecast, according to International Energy Agency data released this Thursday.
