Claro Brasil is a mobile, satellite-television, fixed and broadband telecommunications operator serving Brazil. It was created in 2003 as a result of the union of six regional operators

On September 19, 2003, it was announced the consolidation of all these operators under a single brand, Claro. It is controlled by the Mexican company América Móvil, one of the largest mobile phone groups in the world that, since 2006, has adopted the Claro brand in 16 other Latin American countries: Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Colombia.[1]

In January 2015, Claro incorporated the companies Embratel and NET and became a publicly held company, with a corporate name "Claro S.A.", but maintaining the brands of the companies, different from what occurred in the merger of Telefônica's operations in Brazil by its Subsidiary Vivo.[2]
