Telefonica Brasil’s Large Wireless Business and Extensive Fiber Network Give It an Advantage

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Michael Hodel |

We believe Telefonica Brasil (Vivo) is one of the strongest telecom carriers in Brazil, vying with America Movil to offer converged wireless and fixed-line services across much of the country. But the market faces several challenges, including stiff competition, a fragmented fixed-line industry, and general economic weakness that has also hurt the value of the Brazilian real in recent years. The plan to carve up Oi’s wireless assets appears to be nearing completion, promising to significantly improve the industry’s structure, cutting the number of wireless players to three. While results will likely remain volatile, we expect Vivo will prosper as Brazilians continue to adopt wireless and fixed-line data services.
