Communications in Brazil

Brazil is a technologically contemporary country and has sophisticated telecommunications, internet and broadcasting facilities.

Mobile Telephones

Mobile phones are widespread and predominantly use the GSM system. Coverage varies in different parts of the country. The four biggest mobile phone companies in Brazil are Vivo, Claro, TIM Brasil and Oi.

Voice over Internet Protocol

VoIP is a new technology which allows users to verbally communicate through their computer. Essentially a telephone call made using the internet, VoIP is becoming increasingly more common in the business world due to its low costs, and easy set-up and maintenance.

Forget installation engineers and phone number changes, as long as you have a broadband connection, you can use VoIP any time, any where.

For businesses, this software is sure to eventually phase out the traditional phonecall. For as low as 4p for local and national calls, the economical potential is vast. With international calls often even less than that, VoIP is perfect if you are prone to long-distance telecommunication, or have offices, clients, partners, etc, overseas. What's more, calls made between VoIP users are typically free all you pay for is the standard internet service.

Internet

Brazil is home to the tenth biggest number of internet users in the world, and there has recently been a remarkable shift from dial-up to broadband services because of it.

Post

The postal service is generally efficient, and there are many located across the country. Remember to use priority mail services when sending letters or parcels internationally, otherwise delivery is likely to be very slow. Typically, airmail to Europe takes about five days. Post office opening hours are 0800 to 0600 on Mondays to Fridays, and 0800 to 1200 on Saturdays.
