Brazil has one of the largest mobile markets in Latin America, with four major mobile operators offering a range of voice and data services: Telefónica's Vivo, Claro Brazil, TIM Brasil, and Oi. All four operators have secured spectrum in the 2.5GHz band with which they are expanding their LTE networks and so capitalising on consumer demand for mobile data services. The government has also sanctioned the use of the 700MHz band previously allocated to TV broadcasters for mobile broadband use, though the spectrum will not be fully released by broadcasters until further into 2017.

M-commerce remains low, in terms of the number of transactions, but the country is an m-commerce pioneer in the region, and a number of initiatives between mobile network operators, banks and credit card companies have targeted the large number of people without bank accounts. This has stimulated the sector, which stands to show strong growth in coming years.

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 number of subscribers has fallen sharply. This was partly 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 and so take advantage of cheaper on-net offers. Another factor has been the economic recession, which has dampened consumer spend on telecom services.

This report provides an overview of the mobile voice and data market, providing a range of statistics and analyses, as also scenario forecasts to 2021.

Claro and Net trial LTE Broadcast technology; EU and Brazil sign cooperation agreement to develop 5G technologies; Ericsson contracted by América Móvil to pave a path to 5G; New Antenna Law aimed at extending network footprints and improving mobile services; LTE subscriber reaches 60 million by end-2016; Ministry of Communications approves projects worth R$450 million to deliver LTE-450 to municipalities in 14 states; TIM Brazil sells its tower infrastructure; Oi and Banco do Brazil launch an NFC-based m-payment platform; MNOs sign network sharing agreements; LTE population coverage reaches 55%; report update includes the regulator's market data to December 2016, operator data to Q4 2016, recent market developments.
