According to BNamericas citing local press reports, Brazil’s fixed line operators have won the right to participate in the country’s forthcoming auction of 3.5GHz and 10GHz spectrum licences for WiMAX services on 18 September. In his ruling of 31 August, Judge Naiber Pontes de Almeida of Brasilia’s regional federal tribunal decided that fixed line licence holders can compete for licences in regions where they already hold concession contracts.
