Brazilís telecoms regulator Anatel said the country was home to 138.3 million active mobile lines at the end of August, up 2.25% or three million on the previous month, and the best monthly net gain so far this year. According to data published yesterday and reported by BNamericas, Brazilís mobile operators have collectively added 17.4 million net new mobile lines so far this year. Local press suggest the strong rise in August is likely to have been driven by strong sales ahead of the national Fatherís Day celebration on 3 August.
