TIM Brasil leads market with 65% of customers on 4G

Tuesday 12 February 2019 | 20:46 CET | News
Around 62.7 percent of mobile phones (130 million) run on 4G, in Brazil, almost double the number of 3G devices (52 million) and 2G ones (25 million), according to the Teleco consultancy. TIM has the most, with 65 percent of devices on its network using LTE, followed by Vivo (63%), Claro (61%) and Oi (60%). The number of 4G handsets should continue growing in 2019, but net additions should be lower than the 27 million of 2018, while the number of 3G and 2G handsets is expected to continue to decrease.
