Vivo Total: operator starts selling combo with cell phone and fiber internet

Unlike competitors Claro and Oi, Vivo has never created convergent packages of fixed and mobile services and has always stayed away from combos. Not anymore: the operator started to sell the Total Alive, which includes a cellular plan, fiber optic broadband and fixed telephone, with the possibility of aggregating pay TV via IPTV.

An important detail about Vivo Total: the combo is not available in São Paulo, but can be hired in municipalities in other states. O Techblog found the plans in Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte and Manaus, for example; availability and pricing may vary by location.

These are the plans of Vivo Total:

In the mobile plan, lines can make calls at will to any operator and have free use of WhatsApp (except for video calls), Waze and Moovit. The holder chips allow the use of the smartphone abroad at no extra cost, and coverage varies depending on the amount of internet chosen.

Another detail is the digital services: all Vivo Total plans include access to Paramount+, Bancah Newspapers, TNT Sports Stadium, Band News, Magazine Club and FunKids. Other apps are also available but vary depending on the package you choose.

It is important to note that there is 12-month loyalty – whoever cancels services before the deadline will have to pay a fine for breaching the contract before the deadline. The migration is also available for current carrier customers.

In addition to landline and cell phone, Vivo informs that it is possible to add pay TV packages to the combo, but does not publish prices on its website.

Is it worth it to hire the Vivo Total combo?

The savings with Vivo Total can be good. The simplest combo, Vivo Total Essencial, costs R$199.99 per month; see how the values ​​are if the services are contracted individually:

separate service individual price
Live Fiber 200 Mb/s BRL 99.99
unlimited landline BRL 49.99
Alive Post 25 GB BRL 109.99
Subtotal BRL 259.97

Thus, Vivo Total generates monthly savings of R$59.98. The difference is even greater for more expensive packages, considering that 300 Mb/s broadband and mobile plans with more internet also cost more.

This does not mean that Vivo Total will always be the most suitable option. Those who don’t need so much mobile internet and don’t need a landline can opt for loose broadband and hire a cell phone plan in the control category, for example. Vivo itself has options starting at R$ 44.99 per month, with the right to 12 GB and unlimited calls.

Something that cannot be understood is the Vivo Total V packages: the operator has two plans with the same value, one with 300 Mb/s broadband and the other with 600 Mb/s. I doubt anyone would want to hire less internet if the price for faster speed is the same.
