Rogerio Takayanagi, CEO at TIM Fiber Brasil comments “In Brazil, most of the customers with broadband access have a low performing service (over 70 per cent have less then 2Mb/s of bandwidth). In this market, the main players are incumbents that face challenges in offering higher internet speeds because of the length of the copper network and the investment required to upgrade to a Next Generation network.”  Flavio Lang, CMO at TIM Fiber Brasil will be speaking on this subject on Day 1 of the show alongside Ricardo Sanfelice, Marketing & Product Executive Director, GVT Brazil.

With support from the entire industry including TIM Fiber Brasil as Official Host Operator, Telebras as Strategic Operator Partner and Anatel as Institutional Partner, the event will attract the top professionals from the telecoms ecosystem.
