Telecom Italia tower in RomeThe battle over Brazil's telecoms market ratcheted up on Thursday as European competitors Telecom Italia and Telefonica made rival offers for Vivendi's Brazilian broadband unit GVT. Telecom Italia said it had offered to buy GVT in a cash-and-share bid that values the broadband company at 7 billion euros ($9.3 billion). Spanish rival Telefonica said it had upped a previous 6.7 billion euro bid for GVT to 7.45 billion euros, increasing the cash component of the initial offer made at the start of August. Vivendi, which previously tried to sell GVT in 2013, confirmed it had received the two binding offers and said its supervisory board would examine them at a meeting later in the day.
