On the first day, the 5G auction moved nearly R$7 billion in grants

On the first day, the 5G auction moved nearly R$7 billion in grants

a National Communications Agency (Anatel) held, this Thursday (4), 5G auction. With 24 lots sold in just one day, it has not yet been possible to keep track of all bids for every radio frequency band auctioned. Thus, the event continues next Friday (5), with bids to be submitted for the right to use the 26 GHz band.

Adding all the pieces auctioned on the first day, the auction – the largest in Latin America, according to the Minister of Communications, Fabio Faria– More than R$6.964 billion in grants have already been handled. This amount is charged only for the right to exploit the tracks. In addition, the winners of the auction will have to invest in the networks and infrastructure of the Brazilian telecom sector.

Examples of such considerations include ensuring 4G internet on Brazilian highways and in cities and towns that still have no network. Installing a fiber optic network across the river in the Amazon. As well as ensuring the quality of mobile internet in public schools for basic education.

The expectation, according to Anatel and the government, is that nearly R$50 billion will be raised at the end of the auction. Of this total, R$40 billion will be allocated to investments in digital connectivity and R$10 billion will go to the treasury.

On Thursday (4), only 700MHz, 3.5GHz and 2.3GHz bands and kits were auctioned, and among them, the second offer is limited only to 5G service.

With the exception of the 700MHz band, one of the three largest operators participating in the event: Vivo, Tim or Claro, won all the pieces dedicated to providing 5G service in the national area.
