5G is not available in Brazil and, to date, there is no expected roll out timetable. There are some specific barriers to 5G roll out in Brazil.
A recent conflict between members of the national telecom regulator, Anatel, has resulted in a further postponement of 5G deployment. Proposals from a member to introduce a new auction model that would allow small operators to participate in the launching of 5G services have proved controversial. Some believe that this approach may be too risky and Anatel requested more time to review the proposals.
The other barrier is an interference of frequencies between the 5G and the satellite communications of public television services. Anatel is currently in discussions with large telecom operators about the technical steps that can be taken to ensure that public television services do not suffer interference due to the deployment of 5G.
In addition, there is ongoing political discussion about whether equipment from Huawei should be used. The Brazilian government announced that they do not have intentions to restrict the presence of the Chinese company in the 5G deployment.
