Friday 26 November 2021 | 13:54 CET | News
The board of directors of Brazil's National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) has approved the launch of a public consultation to re-evaluate the regulation on telecom signal blockers.

The regulator's intention is to evaluate the use of jammers by other institutions, meeting the demands of several public security and national defence agencies.
