Brazil 4G mobile phone penetration exceeds 85%

Tuesday 14 September 2021 | 16:17 CET | News
The prevalence of 4G technology reached 85.1 percent of mobile devices in Brazil (without M2M) in June 2021, according to figures published by the Teleco consultancy. TIM Brasil and Claro are the most advanced operators in migrating their mobile phone base to 4G. Although the total number of 4G mobile phones keeps growing, the number of 2G and 3G handsets is stabilising, which could delay the switch-off of those networks and delay the release of frequencies for LTE and 5G networks.
