SAO PAULO Oct 28 (Reuters) - Brazil needs to update its regulations for fixed-line telephone concessions to pave the way for long-term investments and possible consolidation of market players, the chief executive of wireless carrier TIM Participações SA said Wednesday.

"For any consolidation, there are some conditions from a regulatory and legal standpoint before that can happen," TIM CEO Rodrigo Abreu said at an industry event, echoing comments from the chief executive of TIM's controlling shareholder on Tuesday.
