MEO is the commercial brand-name of a triple-play subscription home telecommunications service provided by Portugal Telecom. The service can be delivered either through ADSL2+, FTTH or Satellite link and is available throughout Portugal.

The service was started as a pilot test in Lisbon in 2006 and was later extended to Porto and Castelo Branco. The commercial launch of the ADSL2+ service took place in June 2007, and the satellite service began in April 2008, using the Hispasat satellite, soon followed by the FTTH service.

The ADSL2+ and FTTH offers reach the various regions of Portugal and include broadband Internet services (at up to 200Mbit/s currently) as well as a telephone service.
