BMI View: The early months of 2013 have seen Brazil's telecoms markets make another significant step forward following the launch of the first 4G LTE services, and the first m-commerce services. That these launches occurred at the same time as a slowdown in the overall subscription growth rate of the mobile market is symbolic of the shift occurring as the market matures. Brazil has a high mobile penetration rate, but, with MVNOs set to enter the market in 2013, we expect growth to continue over the medium term.

However, it will be at a slower pace compared to 2011 and 2012, as operators push into the last remaining untapped rural areas. Meanwhile, at the other end of the market, operators are targeting wireless data services and VAS such as m-commerce at the existing subscribers to generate additional revenue in urban areas where subscription acquisition strategies have run their course.

Key Data

Wireless data services have proved popular with consumers, with W-CDMA subscriptions up 41% y-o-y to over 61mn at the end of March 2013. Meanwhile, there were 14,702 LTE subscriptions in Q113, a figure we expect to rise rapidly now that additional operators have launched services.

Mobile market leader Vivo reported successive net subscription losses in Q412 and Q113, losing a total of 818,000 subscriptions - almost all of which were prepaid - as its market share fell 1.3pps in the six months to the end of March 2013.

Pay-TV subscriptions continue to expand as Am?rica M?vil merged its Embratel and Net Servi?os operations with mobile unit Claro. Regulatory data show pay-TV subscriptions increased to 16.189mn in 2012, up from 12.744mn in 2011.
