A National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) resumed this Thursday (25) the discussions on the public notice of the auction technology frequencies 5G, the next generation of mobile telephony.

Anatel’s Board of Directors members meet virtually from 3 pm to discuss the points of the bidding project. The meeting takes place almost a month after the last meeting, on February 1, when two directors from Anatel asked for views to better analyze the case, which caused the decision to be postponed.

If approved, the announcement may pave the way for the 5G auction to be held, which may be one of the largest auctions in the country. The government hoped to do the bidding this semester, but the deadline is increasingly tight.

Among the points of discussion is a requirement in the public notice so that operators use a technological standard known as “release 16” in the 3.5 GHz frequency bands, which is considered the most advanced of 5G networks today and, therefore, more expensive.
