The analysis is based on 6.3 billion samples collected from 966,000 users in 81.2% of the built-up area throughout Brazil. The data was collected in a consecutive 3-month-period from December 2018 to February 2019. The results reveal the specific strengths of each operator thus providing them with a full 360-degree view of their networks.
Vivo achieves the strongest score overall and also provides the best Voice and Data Coverage. TIM ranks best in 4G Coverage, while Claro achieves the best score for User Download Speed. Vivo and Oi score best for Data Service Availability.
“Our 2019 Mobile Review Brazil shows interesting results. What is quite remarkable is the huge difference between rural and metropolitan areas with regards to mobile network quality and performance. It is by far more distinct than in most other countries in the world. Especially in rural areas, we see a clear opportunity for improvements for all Brazilian operators”, says Hakan Ekmen, CEO of P3 communications.
Comparing the city results of Brasilia and Rio de Janeiro with those achieved in in other metropolitan areas as Berlin, Cape Town, Jakarta, London, Singapore and Sidney shows that the Brazilian operators score in the middle field – in global comparison.
