Brisanet confirms regional 5G mobile ambitions

10 Nov 2021

Brazilian ISP Brisanet – the country’s fourth-largest broadband provider by subscribers – has informed its shareholders that it plans to invest BRL2 billion (USD362.3 million) between now and 2030, as it rolls out a regional 5G mobile network. The telco acquired a trio of 5G licences in the government’s recent spectrum auction and has now confirmed that it will use the frequencies to roll out a ‘a robust 5G mobile network with the capacity to provide excellent services throughout the Northeast and Midwest regions’.

Brisanet won a pair of 80MHz 3.5GHz licences, covering the North-east and the Midwest, alongside a 50MHz block of 2.3GHz spectrum covering the North-east. All concessions are valid for 20 years, while the telco is obliged to fulfil certain rural coverage obligations in each licensing area by 2029/2030.
