Brazil's Telecom Regulator Lifts Ban on New Mobile Sales

Brazil's National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) lifted its ban on the sale of new mobile subscriptions in certain regions, clearing the way for Claro, Oi and Tim to resume normal sales activity.

Late last month, Anatel prohibited the nation's mobile operators with the worst customer service from selling new lines in regions with the most problems.

Anatel president João Rezende said the remediation proposals submitted by the carriers were considered satisfactory and the the regulatory agency would continue to monitor progress. "The expansion of subscriber base must be accompanied by investments to enable continuous improvement of service quality," stated Rezende. 03-Aug-12
