Telco and pay-TV giant America Movil is to merge its Brazilian operations. Local director Daniel Hajj says the Mexican-owned company will consolidate its DTH, cable TV and cellular subsidiaries.

America Movil owns the Embratel DTH system, Net Servicos (cable) and Claro mobile phone business, and Hajj says the operation will take between 18 and 30 months to switch the various licence, human resource, finance and technical aspects, and end up with one business.
