Brazil’s broadband base tops 100m subscribers mark in April, report says

29 May 2013

Brazil was home to more than 100 million fixed and mobile broadband accesses at 30 April 2013, according to Antonio Carlos Valente, CEO of Telefonica Brasil and president of Brazilian telco association Telebrasil, as reported by BNAmericas. In his opening address at the association’s annual conference in Brasilia, Valente told delegates that mobile broadband is proving to be a key driver of take-up in the country, noting that 3G coverage is available in virtually all its main cities – where around 90% of the population lives. Last week, the industry regulator Agencia Nacional de Telecomunicacoes (Anatel) reported that mobile broadband connections topped 70 million by 1 May.
