Telefonica's revenue leadership would remain even if only 50% of the revenue from Vivo were consolidated in the Telefonica's group. In this case its gross revenue in the first nine months of 2007 fall to $ 23.4 billion but would still be higher than Claro's group ($ 20.8 Billion)

 

In 2007, the group of Claro / Embratel / Net surpassed Oi and Tim overcame Brasil Telecom, which represented a change compared to 2006.

 

This situation should remain stable in 2008. The greatest threat to the leadership of Telefonica would be a possible joint venture of Oi with BrT. Yet it still maintained the lead in sales with a small margin.

 

Telefonica also leads in cell phones and Broadband. Oi leads in fixed phones and the group of Claro / Embratel / Net on Pay TV.

 

Note: Telefonica including Vivo, Telemig and Amazônia

According to the commentary above, you could ask:

  • Will Oi joint venture with BrT in 2008?
  • Will Portugal Telecom sale its participation in Vivo to Telefonica?
  • Will Telefônica win space in the control of Tim?
  • Is there space to Oi expansion in Latin America ?
