Brasil Telecom’s mobile arm has announced that it expects to have signed up 1.5 million customers by the end of 2005. The company was launched in October 2004 and claimed 622,000 clients by the end of that year; it reached the one million mark by the end of March 2005, having invested BRL900 million (USD372 million) in the rollout of its network. In late April Brasil Telecom GSM reached an agreement to merge with Telecom Italia Mobile (TIM), but the process has been held up by legal disputes.
