The agreement is non-exclusive. "With the signing of this agreement with TLCI, Aspiro's mobile Internet services will now also be sold in Portugal," says Lena Wittbjer, Aspiro's CEO. "During the past six months, Aspiro has begun selling its services to more countries in Europe, both to mobile operators and directly to companies." TLCI was founded in 1992 when the first Portuguese GSM network went into operation. The company has collaboration agreements with TMN, a Portuguese GSM operator, and Portugal Telecom Group. At present, TLCI owns a chain of stores with ten GSM shops in Portugal geared to selling personal teleservices. The company also has agreements with over 100 independent agents who sell TLCI's range of products.
