FAQtos is the follow up of the monIT Project, which ran on Instituto de Telecomunicações from 2002 until 2012, maintaining the same team and objectives.

The project had several phases, where the focus changed from measurements in public outdoor locations, to indoor ones (like shopping centres and football stadiums, and in the so called sensitive locations, such as schools and hospitals), after which the team was dedicated to public information actions and to a national contest targeting secondary schools’ students (10 to 12th grades), called Prémio monIT.


FAQtos is sponsored by the three main Portuguese telecommunications operators: Altice, NOS and Vodafone.  Nonetheless, it is established in the contract that these companies cannot interfere with the results or with the contents of the website.

The researchers working in the project are responsible for all the information presented in this website.  These researchers are guided by the ethics and principles that guide academic activity, namely independence and accuracy.
