Brazil has one of the largest broadband markets in Latin America, though broadband penetration is only slightly above the Latin American average, trailing behind neighbouring Chile, Argentina, and Uruguay.
Substantial investments and regulatory reforms were implemented before the FIFA World Cup was held in 2014 and again before the 2016 Olympic Games. The Games stimulated investment in infrastructure, though the chief beneficiaries were the host cities rather than the country at large.
Another major development is the construction of new submarine cable networks, including the Atlantic Cable System (ACSea) – linking Brazil with the USA, Europe, Africa, and several Latin American countries – as well as the 2,500km Malbec cable which will link Rio De Janeiro with Buenos Aires.
Oi is the leading broadband network operator, closely followed by Net and Vivo. Oi and Vivo provide services via DSL while Net is principally a cable broadband provider. The fibre segment has shown the strongest growth during the last two years, reflecting efforts among providers to extend their networks. Telefónica in particular has an extensive investment program and is exploiting its experience in developing fibre infrastructure in Spain.
This report provides an overview of Brazil’s internet and broadband market, accompanied by relevant statistics, analyses, and subscriber forecasts.

Analyst: Henry Lancaster
As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.
Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.
The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.
