The 2014 FIFA World Cup held in Brazil provided a stimulus to operators providing new technologies and networks such as LTE and FttP. The Brazilian government helped by legislating tax breaks for new telecom investments in networks that support access to fixed or mobile broadband. The 2016 Olympic Games will similarly provide further encouragement from all stakeholders to improve infrastructure, though this is likely to be limited to cities where events are being held.

The asymmetric measures introduced by the General Competition Plan are a significant step in the Brazilian telecom environment. The regulation of network unbundling and controlled wholesale prices should pave the way for a more competitive broadband market. The General Competition Plan requires operators with Significant Market Power (SMP) to share their networks and infrastructure with small or new service providers, at reference prices approved by Anatel.

This report provides an overview of Brazil's telecom market and regulatory environment, accompanied by statistical data, analyses, and outlook.


Key developments:
Brazil's telecom revenues reach R$234 billion; Anatel identifies five SMP operators in the fixed-line sector (Vivo, Oi, Embratel/Net, CTBC, Sercomtel) and four SMP operators in the mobile sector (Oi, Claro, TIM Brasil, Vivo); mobile companies submit investment plans to lift a sales ban imposed by the telecom regulator Anatel.



Companies covered in this report include:
Vivo, Oi, Embratel/Net, Claro, TIM Brasil, Intelig, CTBC/Algar Telecom, Sercomtel, GVT.
