Brazil gains further increases in bandwidth
The Brazilian fixed-line market in recent years has been adversely affected by consumers substituting services for mobile and VoIP solutions.


The number of fixed lines continues to fall slowly, despite gains in the VoIP sector. Internet connectivity in Brazil is provided by a number of submarine cables to the USA, Central and South America, Africa and the Caribbean. New cable systems are due to come into service which will increase bandwidth and push down broadband prices for end-users. Investments are ongoing into extensive terrestrial cables between Brazil, Argentina and Chile which will connect to the EllaLink cable and provide a link between Sao Paulo and both Lisbon and Madrid.
The bulk of the telecom market is divided between a few key operators, including Telefónica Brasil, América Móvil’s local unit Claro, and Oi. Operators have had to contend with a harsh economic environment which has reduced consumer discretionary spend.

Brazil has one of the largest mobile markets in Latin America. All four major mobile operators (Telefónica’s Vivo, Claro Brasil, TIM Brasil and Oi) are expanding their LTE networks to capitalise on consumer demand for mobile data services. LTE by late 2018 provided near universal pop coverage. Investment is ongoing in 5G, while the government has also made available spectrum in the 700MHz band (previously allocated to TV broadcasters) for mobile broadband. About 70% of this spectrum had been released by broadcasters by late 2018.
The mobile subscriber base grew rapidly for a number of years, in line with the increasing footprint of mobile networks, but since late 2015 the subscriber base has fallen steadily. This has partly been due to operators cancelling dormant SIM cards, as also to pricing competition which eroded the need among some consumers to hold SIM cards from different providers so take advantage of cheaper on-net offers.

Brazil also has one of the largest broadband markets in the region, though broadband penetration is average. Oi is the leading broadband network operator, closely followed by Net and Vivo. The fibre segment has shown the strongest growth during the last two years, reflecting efforts among providers to extend their networks. Telefónica in particular has an extensive investment program and is exploiting its experience in developing fibre infrastructure in Spain.

It also profiles the main fixed-line operators and provides relevant statistics and analyses. The report in addition reviews the fixed and fixed-wireless broadband segments, accompanied by market statistics, analyses and subscriber forecasts.
