As of next Monday, 9/19, providers that acquired the 3.5 GHz band in the 5G tender held last year will be able to activate stations with the fifth generation technology of the mobile service in the cities of Aracaju/ SE, Boa Vista/RR, Campo Grande/MS, Cuiabá/MT, Maceió/AL, São Luís/MA and Teresina/PI.

The decision was taken this Wednesday, 9/14, by the Monitoring Group for the Implementation of Solutions for Interference Problems in the 3,625 to 3,700 MHz band (Gaispi).

Until November 28, when the public notice expires, the providers Claro, Tim and Vivo must have at least eight 5G stations activated in Aracaju/SE, five in Boa Vista/RR, 11 in Campo Grande/MS, eight in Cuiabá/MT, 13 in Maceió/AL, 14 in São Luís/MA and 11 in Teresina/PI.

The cities of Brasília/DF, Belo Horizonte/MG, Curitiba/PR, Fortaleza/CE, Florianópolis/SC, Goiânia/GO, João Pessoa/PB, Natal/RN, Palmas/TO, Porto Alegre already have 5G stations in operation. /RS, Recife/PE, Rio de Janeiro/RJ, Salvador/BA, São Paulo/SP and Vitória/ES. The 3.5 GHz band is the one that guarantees the best potential of the fifth generation.

Anatel's Board of Directors had already approved, on 8/18, the postponement of the release date for the use of 5G in the 3.5 GHz band to October 28 in other capitals, as suggested by Gaispi, based on information from the Entity Range Administrator (EAF).

This measure was necessary to allow the conclusion of the actions to vacate the band and mitigate any interference in the reception of Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) stations. The possibility of anticipation by decision of Gaispi remains, even in these cities, provided that the necessary measures are adopted by the EAF.

Whoever receives the broadcasts of TV Aberta through the satellite dish needs to adapt the equipment to avoid possible interference.

Enrolled in the Single Registry for Social Programs of the Federal Government (CadÚnico) who receive a satellite TV signal can request a free kit for adapting the equipment to Siga Antenado, the trade name of EAF.

It is essential to schedule the installation of new equipment. More information is available on the Siga Antenado website. Call 0800-729-2404 is also available.
