The proposal includes an eventual reduction of funds for the development of 5G. These funds would be allocated to digital TV broadcasting in sparsely populated locations. The changes could affect a programme on the release of bands for 5G services in cities of over 1 million residents, as well as the deployment of public Wi-Fi networks in small settlements.
