Brazil - Fixed-Line Infrastructure - Market Overview and Statistics

The Brazilian fixed-line market has been adversely affected by consumers substituting services for mobile solutions. Teledensity, at about 22%, is slightly higher than average for Latin America but less than half the rate found in other advanced economies. Although the number of fixed lines in Brazil continues to increase slowly, partly attributed to VoIP connections, teledensity remains stagnant.

VoIP services in Brazil are not regulated by Anatel and are offered by many service providers, including US firms. The main Brazilian VoIP companies are Net Serviços and GVT.

Brazil is connected through submarine cables to the USA, Central and South America, and the Caribbean, but it has no direct link with other continents, and insufficient bandwidth has pushed up broadband prices. To meet this shortcoming, the Brazilian government has entrusted state-owned Telebrás with the construction of a new submarine cable network the Atlantic Cable System (ACSea) linking Brazil with the USA, Europe, Africa, and several Latin American countries. Telebrás has also been charged with building a satellite to be used for military purposes and to boost the country's national broadband program.

Because of remoteness issues, satellite communications have retained an important role in Brazil. The Amazon jungles of the north make satellites the major communication facility, as it is almost impossible to lay fibre optic cable in the thick vegetation.

This report provides an overview of Brazil's telecom infrastructure, accompanied by relevant statistics, analyses, and fixed-line scenario forecasts to 2020.


Key developments:
Telebras aiming to use the SDGC satellite for broadband services from 2017; ACSea submarine cable linking Brazil and Europe contracted by Telebrás and IslaLink; Seabras-1 cable to provide direct route between the US and Brazil; government studies Northern Connection cable network across the Amazon basin; Star One D1 satellite to be used for the 2016 Olympic Games; government-owned Defence and Strategic Communications Geostationary Satellite (SGDC) to launch in late 2016; report update includes operator data to Q1 2015; regulator's market data updates to April 2015; recent market developments.
