Anatel consults on use of 2300MHz band for 5G

21 Aug 2018

Brazil’s National Telecommunications Agency (Agencia Nacional de Telecomunicacoes, Anatel) has initiated a consultation regarding the potential use of the 2300MHz band for 5G mobile services. Billed Public Consultation No. 25, the watchdog seeks to gauge stakeholder comments regarding possible usage models for the band. The consultation commenced on 16 August and will remain open for 30 days.

As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, in November 2017 Anatel signed Resolution No. 688, confirming that the spectrum in question would be revoked from Auxiliary Broadcasting and Related Services (Servicos Auxiliar de Radiodifusao e Correlatos, SARC) and replay TV (Repeticao de Televisao, RpTV) licence holders.
