Anatel reviewing use of 1500MHz L-band for mobile use

3 Nov 2020

Brazil’s National Telecommunications Agency (Agencia Nacional de Telecomunicacoes, Anatel) has confirmed that it has approved a resolution reviewing the usage of 1427MHz-1518MHz (1500MHz) spectrum in the so-called ‘L-band’. The watchdog notes: ‘Thus, the objective is to standardise and allocate multi-services for the band, according to the model that has been adopted by Anatel in several regulations, such as in the recent regulations [relating to] the 2.3GHz and 3.5GHz bands. Thus, in order to ensure greater efficiency and compliance … the new resolution now allows the use of any arrangements, without population or geographical limitations, for mobile and fixed multipoint services.’
