In this comprehensive webinar, we dive into the essential aspects of connecting your home to utilities and other services in Portugal, featuring insights from expert Fernando Mendes. This session covers everything from setting up utilities such as electricity, gas, and water, to ensuring your home is equipped with the best internet and cell phone coverage.

Internet Connection Essentials

Fernando guides us through the intricacies of home internet options in Portugal, highlighting the three main internet operators. He explains how to check service availability at your address and the differences between fiber and cable internet, including speed variations (200mb, 500mb, 1000mb) and how these impact your online experience. The discussion also covers the nuances of 2-year contract commitments, 4G coverage in rural locales, the extensive 4G/5G mobile phone coverage across Portugal, and the prerequisites for entering a contract. Fernando sheds light on the acceptance of European IBAN for direct debit payments, typical internet costs, and what to expect if you need to move before your contract ends.

Cell Phone Plans

Discover the benefits of bundling internet and cell phone plans, offering a streamlined approach to managing your communication needs.

Electricity and Gas Connections

The webinar explores the variety of operators available for electricity and gas, the flexibility of contracts allowing changes after three months, and the process of setting up a contract. Fernando addresses the use of European IBAN for direct debits, steps to take if services are disconnected, gas availability across Portugal, the necessity of backup solutions, methods for comparing prices, and liabilities for previous occupants' outstanding bills. Additionally, strategies for reducing heating bills, the availability of three-phase power, and understanding 'potencia' are discussed to help you make informed decisions about your energy use.

Water Services

Fernando elucidates the process of setting up water services, noting that typically only one company operates per city. He emphasizes the requirement for a photo of the water meter when initiating a contract, alongside the essentials needed for contract completion. While highlighting the small service fee (due to the lack of commission from water companies) and the occasional small administrative fee charged by some water companies, Fernando provides a clear overview of the straightforward process involved.

This webinar is a must-watch for anyone navigating the complexities of connecting utilities in Portugal, offering practical advice, essential details, and insider tips to ensure your home is fully equipped and comfortable. Whether you're moving to Portugal or looking to optimize your current setups, Fernando's expertise will guide you through the process smoothly and efficiently.
