Telefônica and Vivo Integration
In 2011, with the acquisition of Vivo, Telefonica has established itself as the largest integrated operator in Brazil, both by numbers of clients, as by revenue, in addition to offer new opportunities to the professionals.
Given the strong presence of Vivo in all Brazilian states, Telefônica´s services now are called Vivo. Telefônica brand will continue with its institutional presence.
For some specific audiences, in order to generate a greater rapprochement between the brands, Telefônica has adopted the transitional brand Telefônica Vivo.
