  1. 1. Diálogo Regional sobre Sociedad de la Información Spectrum Brazil Ricardo Tavares TechPolis ACORN-REDECOM Conference 2010 (Brasilia) 13 de Mayo de 2010
  2. 2. Telecom/IT Sector in Brazil
  3. 3. Mobile Telecommunications in Brazil 176.8 mn Subs 210 mn Subs 82.5% Prepaid +100% Penetration 96.6% Coverage 8.1 mn 3G terminals 55 mn MBB Subs 4.6% of Mobile Subs +25% of Mobile Subs These projections imply a steep growth, not only in the number of subscribers but also in the resulting spectrum necessities and infrastructure investments
  4. 4. Spectrum Allocation to SMP in Brazil  The frequency bands for mobile communication in Brazil are distributed in the following manner: 850 MHz; 900 MHz; 1700 MHz and 1800 MHz; 1900 MHz and 2100 MHz (reserved mainly for 3G). Frequencies in 850MHz and 900MHz Frequencies in 1700MHz and 1800MHz Frequencies in 1900MHz and 2100MHz
  5. 5. Current Spectrum Allocation will not be Enough • Today, the total spectrum used for SMP in Brazil is approximately 350MHz. • To be able to offer higher traffic rates, larger Current spectrum assigned for PMS in Brazil spectrum bands would have to be allocated (such as 2.6GHz band). Spectrum Allocation in Selected Countries ITU estimation on spectrum needs for 2015
  6. 6. 2.6 GHz: Anatel is proposing ITU Option 1 • Following ITU recommendations, ITU Options for 2.6GHz Band Structure Anatel launched in 2009 a public consultation in order to define 140 MHz additional spectrum for the SMP in the 2.6 GHz band (2500 MHz - 2690 MHz). • ITU Option 1 band structure for 2.6 GHz band help to reap the rewards of economies of scale due to international harmonization as well as interference reduction. This is a unique opportunity to obtain 20MHz of continuous bandwidth. • This additional 140 MHz bandwidth dedicated to mobile data will be crucial for mobile data transmission.
