Brisanet surpasses Algar and leads the competition among small suppliers in Brazil

Brisanet, a Brazilian telecommunications company, surpassed Algar Telecom and established itself as the leader among small providers, according to the latest report from regional agency Anatel (ATC). With 736.6 thousand accesses in the country and a high concentration in the states of Rio Grande do Norte, Ceará and Paraíba, the company achieved the highest growth among its rivals.

For a decade now, the market for independent providers has grown notably in Brazil and currently has 16.5 million accesses in total, representing 42.7% of fixed broadband accesses. Brisanet, for its part, boosted its reach until 2020, when it fell significantly, and finally managed to rebuild itself in the latter time and surpassed the 727 thousand accesses of the Minas Gerais operator.

Regarding TV services, last June small providers made 344,600 Pay TV contracts, which represents 2% of the total market. With 39.5 thousand accesses, Brisanet also leads the competition, surpassing Nossa TV with 34 thousand and Cabo with 28.3 thousand.
