Brazil - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Forecasts
Brazil dominates the Latin American Internet market in terms of user numbers. In terms of penetration, it occupies approximately the third place, behind Uruguay and Chile and slightly ahead of Argentina. Since 2002, Brazil has experienced a growing migration from dial-up to broadband. While virtually all cable TV companies offer cable modem services, ADSL is the access technology of choice, accounting for 84% of the country’s broadband market. Convergence strategies are gaining popularity in Brazil. With the widespread development of VoIP, more and more companies are looking to incorporate Internet telephony with their broadband offerings. In October 2004, TV Cidade and TVA were the first Brazilian operators to adopt the triple play strategy, combining VoIP, broadband and pay TV services.
Report Summary

Brazil - Key Statistics, Telecom Market and Regulatory Overview
Since mid-2003, the Brazilian telecom market has enjoyed a period of outstanding growth, led by mobile telephony and broadband. However, while the mobile and broadband continue to boom, local fixed-line telephony stagnates, despite low teledensity. As in most other Latin American countries and despite government efforts, Brazil’s fixed lines are still dominated by the incumbents in their respective regions. New entrants, particularly in the fixed-line sector, still find it hard to establish a footing. Rules for line sharing were published in May 2004, and were welcomed by companies striving to compete with the incumbents. In order to promote competition, further changes are needed in the country’s interconnection policy, local loop unbundling and number portability.
Report Summary

Portugal Telecoms, IP Networks, Digital Media and Telecommunications Forecasts
Portugal’s mid-sized telecom market has one of the highest contributions to GDP in the EU, indicative of the importance placed on Portugal’s telecom sector. The country has been among the most affected by the general economic crisis: the government’s debt reached 128 billion by early 2011 while debt as a percentage of GDP reached above 76% (above the EU recommended maximum of 60%).
