Movistar becomes the commercial brand for all fixed and mobile services in Spain and Latin America, with the exception of Brazil, where we continue with Vivo. It is precisely in this Brazilian market where we go a step further and, by acquiring 50% of Brasilcel, we become the leading integrated operator.

Movistar, trademark of all services: ‘Life shared is more’


Big change, externally and internally: Movistar becomes the commercial brand for all Telefónica's fixed and mobile telephony services in Spain and Latin America (after a gradual roll-out in the different countries), with the exception of Brazil with Vivo. The O2 brand is the one used in the rest of Europe, while Telefónica remains the flagship and institutional voice of the Group. One of the best known and most popular slogans of this campaign was "Life shared is more". This change had a clear objective: to adapt to the needs of the client, with a young, fresh spirit, to achieve: • Increased convergence • Unification of multimedia content • Accessibility to new communication networks and technologies.

A firm commitment in Brazil


Seven years after the creation of Vivo in Brazil as a joint venture with Portugal Telecom, and after getting the green light from the Brazilian regulator Enatel, Telefónica takes a decisive step and takes control of Vivo by acquiring 50% of Brasilcel, becoming the leading integrated operator in Brazil.

Support for the Ability Awards


Social integration has been a relevant issue for Telefónica and in 2010, in a pioneering way, we supported the Ability Awards in Spain. These awards, of Irish origin, aim to recognise those companies and institutions that develop sustainable business models and integrate disability into their value chain.
