Brasil - Other operators may be allowed to share with Telebras the extension of the Broadband network

[bloomberg] Brazilian telecommunications companies will be invited to share with state-owned Telecomunicacoes Brasileiras SA leadership of the government’s plan to extend broadband Internet services to all homes, incoming Communications Minister Paulo Bernardo told Folha de S. Paulo newspaper.

The private carriers will need to offer a reasonable price and a quality service to ensure their participation in the government’s plan to deliver broadband access to 68 percent of Brazilian homes by 2014, Bernardo said, according to the Sao Paulo-based newspaper.

Bernardo, who is currently Brazil’s planning minister, will assume control of the broadband plan when he takes office Jan. 1 with President-elect Dilma Rousseff.
