TIM looks to get 18% of client base using smartphones

Bnamericas Published: Wednesday, May 04, 2011
Brazilian mobile carrier TIM Participações, a unit of Italy's Telecom Italia, forecasts smartphone users will represent 18% of its client base by the end of the year, up from the current 12%, TIM CEO Luca Luciani said Tuesday. "Brazil has great potential for smartphones," Luciani said. "As fixed internet services are poor, there's a large untapped market." As reported earlier, TIM had first quarter net profits of 213mn reais (US$134mn), almost four times higher than year-ago earnings of 54.6mn reais. At the end of March, TIM had a 25.1% share of the Brazilian market, up from 23.7% a year before. By Rodrigo Petry
