For What is the Roaming Rate?
When the telephony system of the brazilian mobile began its expansion, the coverage of the operators was much smaller than today. And most of them only covered a certain region of the country. Thus, at the moment that a user of the mobile phone system had to transition between cities of different codes, or different states, it would be necessary to use the network and infrastructure of other operators. The roaming came in as a way to offset the extra cost to the operator of the client, which would have to pay to another carrier for the use of the network.
