Triple-play services in Brazil: slow progress
Brazilian incumbents are trying to focus on broadband expansion and quality of service. High-speed broadband access and pay-TV services are both very expensive in Brazil, with only the wealthy able to afford them. Regulatory issues are preventing telecoms operators from offering discounted triple-play bundles to the masses, and consequently FTTx deployments are very small. Only if regulatory barriers are lifted will the pace of FTTx rollouts increase.
