The planned private network of the Brazilian government has been budgeted at BRL 780 million, but the cost could reach up to BRL 1 billion, according to Minister of Communications Fabio Faria, reports Teletime. Speaking during a Parliamentary hearing, he said that the project includes a mobile network for government agencies in Brasilia and a secure fixed network for the other states. Faria added that the network will be set up by the private sector (the winners of the 5G frequency auction) and that it will also be responsible for its operation.
