Clearwire's fourth quarter and full year results clearly exceeded our expectations. The Company's solid results during the quarter reflect strong direct customer additions and a nice contribution from its wholesale partners.

From the past years, the group made its mark in the 4G mobile broadband services domain by crafting the largest 4G network in North America, by gathering additional financial support to progress in this domain, and by paving way for the 4G wholesale services which launched three of the most admired communications companies in the U.S.

Looking at the consolidated territory the group added 87,000 new retail subscribers during its fourth quarter of 2009, which is considered to be more than its first three quarters. Sign up today at to access the full report on this company.

Vivo Participacoes SA is a Brazil-based company engaged in the telecommunications sector. The group is into mobile telecommunication services, cellular phone data transmission and mobile Internet services which it serves all over Brazil.

We are extremely bullish on VIVo's growth prospects. Vivo made a closing in 2009 by upholding its position by bagging the highest market share, and maintaining the stability in terms of service quality and customer service. The group is considered to have the largest 3G coverage in Brazil. All this kept the company on a stable track to hold on to its leadership position amongst other mobile telecom operators in Brazil, selling differentiated products, services and plans to the customer base.

Now that the penetration rate is over 90%, the focus will start to shift from the quantity of new subscribers to the quality. In that respect, Vivo is still lagging behind and is one of the areas where Vivo need to focus on; average revenue per user, while relatively steady in the fourth quarter, fell more than 9% in 2009.
