Brasilia, January 18, 2023 - ABRINT, the Brazilian Association of Internet and Telecommunications Providers, held a meeting this Wednesday morning with the Minister of Communications, Juscelino Filho.

The meeting was attended by Mauricélio Oliveira Junior, Director-President of ABRINT; Sidnei Batistella, Vice-President of ABRINT; and Cristiane Sanches, leader of ABRINT's Board of Directors and chairman of ANATEL's Advisory Board, and aimed to present the entity, the Brazilian market of small internet providers and the importance of the sector for the Brazilian economy.

“We address the relevant role of regional providers for the expansion of networks in Brazil and for significant connectivity across the country (ie, full use of the internet, going far beyond simple connectivity). We discussed the main guidelines and axes of the Association for the coming years, with emphasis on the new rules for sharing poles and expanding access to credit for small providers. In addition, we present the Mission, Vision and Values of the entity, as well as its broad and solid experience in national and international public debates. The Minister was very receptive to the issues, and showed openness to dialogue, which is very important for the sector, as it brings security to providers. We are optimistic, it really was a good conversation”, declares Mauricélio Oliveira Junior, CEO of ABRINT.

ABRINT representatives also addressed their broad and solid experience in national and international public debates.

“We formalize the invitation for the Honorable Minister to attend the ABRINT 2023 National Meeting, which will take place in May in the city of São Paulo. This is the biggest event in Latin America for the universe of internet providers -- in 2022, we received 14,000 congressmen. This year, we look forward to the participation of the main national authorities related to connectivity in Brazil, in addition to international guests”, concludes Mauricélio Oliveira Junior.


The Brazilian Association of Internet and Telecommunications Providers (ABRINT) operates nationwide and represents regional internet providers in discussions with the government, regulatory bodies and similar entities.
