Who looks after the telphone cables

Hi,

After the recent strong winds (I hope everyone is OK and and has not suffered any damage) I noticed that a number of trees nearby are looking decidedly precarious, and if they do fall, they'll bring down the electricity and telephone cables to our house.

I've no idea who owns the land where the trees are, so my first thought is to report it to EDP and hope they take preventative measures. But - with the telephone lines, who should I contact - we have a contract with Vodafone, but presumably they don't manage the cables. Is it Portugal Telecom - neither the PT (ie Altice) nor the Vodafone websites seem to offer any relevant links.

Ta,

Steve

If you have no joy, takes photos and take them with a map reference into your local Junta da Freguesia on Thursday. Tell them the danger & I'm sure they will pass it on.

If you're worried before that let your local Bombeiros know.

Thanks for your replies.

I've let EDP know, but can't see how to tell the telephone people. Portugal Telecom isn't an entity now, being subsumed into Altice. And their website is very "corporate" with links to MEO, SAPO, and other sub-groups, but nowhere can I see anything about managing the telephone cables network.

I'll try to report it to Vodafone, but I hadn't thought about the ProCiv/Bombeiros route - a good idea.

Ta, Steve
