LONDON – Brazil’s government welcomes additional funding of USD 4.7 billion for National Broadband Plan (PNBL).
With a population of around 204 million, Brazil’s telecoms sector is one of the largest ones in Latin America. However, the domestic telecoms industry revenue has been negatively affected by the persisting economic recession which has disturbed consumer sentiment and reduced spending on services.
The national telecommunications infrastructure is poised to be considerably augmented over the next couple of years as additional underwater cables get ready for service. Additionally, the state-owned SGDC satellite, due to be operational in March 2017, is destined to provide defence communications for the MoD alongside broadband services to
The fixed-line marketplace has been adversely affected by consumers’ replacing services for VoIP and mobile solutions. The broadband sector also forms one of the biggest markets in the region, although broadband penetration rates are only modestly above the regional average, dragging behind the boarder-countries of Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. The mobile sector is led by the 4 network carriers, such as Claro, Vivo, Oi and TIM. Having secured spectrum in the 2.5GHz band, all four are expanding their LTE networks to capitalise on consumer need for mobile services. The number of LTE mobile subscribers reached 60 million by 2016.
The country’s mobile subscriber base has been increasing rapidly over years, in tandem with the surging footprint of mobile data networks, but since late 2015 the subscribers base has dropped dramatically.
