Brazil's National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) has decided to extend the period of consultation on regulations for the conditions of use of the 700 MHz frequency band by 20 days, so that interested parties can express their views. The extension was requested by the National Union of Telephone Companies and Personal Mobile Service Providers (Sinditelebrasil) in order to broaden the discussion on the topic.
According to Anatel's proposal, this band may be used for the provision of voice and data transmission (high speed internet). Currently in Brazil, TV broadcasting uses the 700 MHz band but reallocation will be made possible by the transition from analogue to digital TV. Contributions can be sent to Anatel until 04 May.
