​Mattos Filho helps Alô Mobile reach the faithful

Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr e Quiroga Advogados has helped a group of investors led by former Brasil Telecom head Ricardo Knoepfelmacher enter into an agreement with local telecoms company Vivo to create a mobile phone network for Assembleia de Deus, one of Brazil’s largest evangelical Christian communities.

The firm helped Alô AD Mobile obtain the green light from the National Telecommunications Agency on 30 January. Regulatory approval allows Alô Mobile to operate as a virtual network, offering its own service and rates while using Vivo’s wireless infrastructure.

Alô Mobile is marketed at Assembleia de Deus, a loose grouping of Pentecostal Christians predominantly located in Brazil, where some 18 million believers live. It hopes to generate revenue worth US$87 million over the next five years by selling SIM cards at the group’s 40,000 temples.
