OECD Telecommunication and Broadcasting Review of Brazil 2020
Connectivity is the backbone of the digital transformation, and as such, policies
and regulatory measures that foster access to high-quality communication services
at competitive prices are key. This review provides a comprehensive examination of
Brazil’s communication and broadcasting sectors, highlighting areas for regulatory
and policy reform that can help ensure a successful and inclusive digital transformation.
It analyses market performance of the communication and broadcasting sectors, as well
as underlying policies and regulations. Based on its findings, the report recommends
actions in five key areas: improving the policy and regulatory framework; overhauling
the taxation, fees and tariff framework; improving market conditions; fostering competition
in communication and broadcasting markets; and strengthening national policies and
evidence-based policy making. These areas should be addressed simultaneously, in order
to ensure a holistic approach to reform.
