President of Anatel believes that by 2019 the entire national territory is already covered with the new 4G signal and by the beginning of 2016, Brazil has at least 300 thousand orchesters offering Wi-Fi signal to its users.
According to the president of Anatel, João Resende, Brazil today has about one million earbuds, where the great majority of them do not work as they should;With this the idea is to modernize at least 300 thousand of this total, where they should be able to offer Wi-Fi signal to the population.Still according to João Resende, another 400 thousand payphones should be deactivated.
The prediction of the operation of the “Wi-Fi phones” will be between 2015 and 2016, and in this same period, the mobile Internet with 3G and 4G technologies will be available in all Brazilian municipalities.
The deadlines and real targets will be defined during the elaboration of the announcement of the 700 MHz band, which will be reserved for 4G.It is worth mentioning that the auction of this band should occur between April and May of next year according to information from the president of Anatel itself.
Nowadays, the 4G system operates in Brazil with 2.5GHz frequency, which was auctioned in 2012. The announcement for the 700 MHz band that has not yet been prepared, must first go through a public consultation and thus voted in December of this year. Anatel’s goal is for all of Brazil to have the 4G signal until 2019.
