Banda larga móvel em Portugal | Mobile Broadband in Portugal

Banda larga móvel atinge valor recorde de 6,8 milhões de utilizadores

“O número de utilizadores de serviços da banda larga móvel cresceu 17,7% no segundo trimestre de 2017, face ao mesmo período de 2016.

No final de junho existiam em Portugal 6,8 milhões de utilizadores de serviços típicos da banda larga móvel. O valor é o mais elevado até à data e revela um aumento de 17,7% em termos homólogos.

A Anacom refere que o crescimento da utilização destes serviços está associado ao aumento dos utilizadores de Internet no telemóvel – 20,5% face ao mesmo período de 2016 -, e à crescente taxa penetração dos smartphones – que atingiu 72,7% no final de junho, segundo o Barómetro de Telecomunicações da Marktest.”

MINE at a conference in Germany

Petra and Tim have presented a poster of MINE on a conference in Chemnitz, Germany (http://bildungsraeume2017.de/). The Topic was, roughly translated, ‘rooms for education’. Our room, following this topic, can be interpretated as online and not bound to a physical place. We had some nice talks and impressions which will be brought back to our project.
