GVT brand replaced by Vivo from 15 April

29 Feb 2016

Brazilian fixed network operator Global Village Telecom (GVT) – wholly owned by Telefonica of Spain since May 2015 – will drop its GVT brand from 15 April 2016 in favour of the parent group’s converged Brazilian mobile/fixed Vivo brand. From 2 April the GVT and Vivo websites will be unified, and GVT’s long-distance telephone dial code (25) will be replaced by Vivo’s (15). Existing GVT user packages terms will continue to be honoured by Vivo, whilst GVT customers can also access discounts on Vivo mobile and other services.
