The Brazilian government passed regulations opening the commercial ISP market to competition in 1995. A year later, Universo Online launched operations, becoming Brazil’s largest Internet provider. From 2002, Brazil began to experience a growing migration from dial-up to broadband, with ADSL soon becoming the leading technology. In 2005/2006, several WiMAX pilot projects were undertaken in Brazil, but WiMAX auctions were repeatedly delayed. A point of controversy was whether the country’s fixed-line incumbents should enter the WiMAX market, or whether their participation would stifle competition. This report provides background information for the more regularly updated Brazil - Broadband Market - Overview, Statistics and Forecasts. As such, it covers details on the history and development of Brazil’s broadband market that are absent from the more up-to-date report, but it does not contain forecasts or statistics.
