BMI View:

The launch of the first 4G LTE services in Brazil in H113 was an important development as the
market moves towards next generation services. Alongside LTE, operators are also developing value-added
services such as M2M and m-commerce as the market matures beyond a prepaid centric environment of
subscription acquisition maximisation. Brazil has a high mobile penetration rate, but with MVNOs set to
enter the market in 2013 we expect growth to continue over the medium term. However, it will be at a
slower pace compared with 2011 and 2012, as operators push into the last remaining untapped rural areas.
In the broadband market, Anatel has been active in trying to enhance competition, reducing licence fees for
operators wishing to provide multiple services. However, data from Telebras suggest the government's
National Broadband Plan has been less than successful so far.

Key Data

• Mobile subscription growth slowed markedly in 2013, in part because of restrictions on selling new
subscriptions early in the year, but also due to saturation as the penetration rate reached 133.9% at the
end of September 2013.
