RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - 5G technology will be available in all Brazilian capitals by July 2022. The public notice for the 5G auction bid was approved on February 25th by the National Telecommunications Agency (ANATEL) Board of Directors, which has also decided on the mandatory adoption of standalone 5G, which will require the implementation of a network independent from the current 4G set-up. The notice will now be analysed by the Federal Audit Court (TCU).
This 5G technology allows data traffic up to 100 times faster than the fourth generation standard (4G), because it uses a wider radio spectrum . . .
