Rigor. (from the lat. rigore) n. 1. harshness; strength; 2.fig., severity; punctuality; accuracy.

There is no "more or less levelled", "more or less upright”, "more or less clean" or "more or less safe", but rather “levelled”, "upright”, "clean” and “safe". The rigour is reflected in our procedures, in time and in the rules to follow. In the light of moral and principles, being severe means being rigorous.

Solidarity. (from the lat. solidare) n. 1. the quality of being solidary; 2. reciprocal responsibility among the members of a group, namely social, professional, etc.; 3. sense of sharing another’s suffering.

Being solidary is being a friend, offering our hand with genuine generosity and bringing joy and human warmth to those who, somehow, are marginalized. Being solidary is being more human. A solidary company is recognized as a fair and non-selfish company. A solidary company is a preferred choice in business. It is a more competitive company. Volunteering is a vehicle to solidarity. It is modern, fair, cultured, friend, it is a noble gesture of moral elevation.

Courage. (from the lat. coraticum) n. 1. bravery facing danger; intrepidity; to have audacity; 2. moral force before a suffering or setback; 3. [fig.] to input energy when performing a difficult task; perseverance...

Courage is essential in our life. Courage to face less pleasant situations when complex issues come up, not expecting random resolutions.
It is a value that we must highlight as opposed to the fearful, cowardly and laziness.
The courage to react to criticism not with an attitude of demotivation or sadness, but rather to search for the means and the action to overcome its own reason. This kind of courage, which is also an intellectual courage, is highly recommended.

Ambition. (from the lat. ambitione) n. 1. vehement desire of wealth, honours or glories; 2. expectation about the future; aspiration; 3. lust; greed…

Vehement desire to achieve a particular goal. Ambition not to resign ourselves. Ambition to take the best potential from ourselves. Ambition to deserve ourselves.

Good Taste. (from the lat. gustu) n. 1. ability to appreciate aesthetic value or standards of something; 2. elegance, refinement, aesthetic sense; 5. particular touch given by an artist to his works.

We decided to build the company's economic foundations under a cultured, cosmopolitan and cool image. Because it is a charming state of being. Good taste because we are sustainable and we respect the planet. Good taste because we are sensitive. Good taste just because.

Responsibility. (from the lat respondere) n. the trait of being answerable to someone for something or being responsible for one's conduct; a form of trustworthiness.

We must be certain that, before a choice, we chose what is best for both of us and not just the best for each one. Each employee is responsible for his negotiated activity and co-responsible if the co-worker does not fulfil his own task, thus preventing the common goal. A team is a set of individuals - is a whole. In the business game, as in social or family contexts, everyone must comply with their own relative position and we shall not permit that one of ours fails to be in our team.

Optical Fibre reaches Caminha and covers 10 000 homes in the early months of 2018

Optical fibre is coming to Caminha. DSTelecom technicians are already working in various streets of the municipality, but they won't finish there. Cristelo, Azevedo, Venade, Vilarelho, Seixas, and Lanhelas will also be equipped with optical fibre in early 2018. This is only the first phase, because another five towns will also benefit from this coverage, which is planned to be completed by March next year. "We promise, we deliver: little by little, the optical fibre network is being expanded in the municipality of Caminha", says the Mayor.

This installation was a commitment made by Miguel Alves a few months ago, but the promise will be fulfilled faster and in a wider extension than planned, since the works were forecast to commence in early 2018, reaching the towns of Caminha, Moledo and Vila Praia de Âncora in the first phase, in a total investment of one million euros. The partnership between the City and DStelecom made it possible to go even further and improve voice, video, and high-speed data services to almost the entire the population of the municipality and to those who visit us.

"We made an election commitment with the population, and once again, we are delivering it. The municipality of Caminha wanted optical fibre network for a long time. It's important in the daily lives of families (this will noticed quickly in people's homes, in the TV and internet service), but it's especially critical for companies"; said Miguel Alves.

In tourism, "the most important industry of the municipality, it's an essential lever, an instrument for those who visit us, and so that we can do different things," the Mayor stressed.


DStelecom, using an "operators’ operator" model, provides its optical fibre network to all telecom operators, through a wholesale, high-speed, and high-capacity offer, using the most advanced technology, the company explains. "It's a pioneer multi-operator business model in Europe. It enables the provision of connectivity services and solutions through a neutral and open network, to people and businesses in 90 municipalities", DStelecom also noted.

Through this optical fibre network coverage, families and businesses can benefit from state-of-the-art telecom services and solutions offered by the main operators, at competitive prices, operating simultaneously and transparently within the same fibre infrastructure.

As part of an expansion strategy and using part of the network already built, DStelecom is expanding its network in the Municipality of Caminha to cover over 10 000 homes, thus reaching about 15 000 people. As a result, inhabitants of the areas covered by optical fire may consult with national telecom operators, in order to join their 3P (TV+ INTERNET+PHONE) or 4P (TV+INTERNET+PHONE+MOBILE) services.


The ongoing works are planned to cover 12 towns in two phases. As mentioned, the first phase will include Caminha, Cristelo, Azevedo, Venade, Vilarelho, Seixas, and Lanhelas. In the next phase, the optical fibre will reach Moledo, Vila Praia de Âncora, Vile, Riba de Âncora, and Âncora.
