Is it possible to use 5G in Brazil?
The 5G auction that will determine the operators and other companies that will take care of the technology infrastructure in Brazil took place this Thursday, November 4th. Companies like Claro, TIM and Vivo already appear as winners in the 3.5 GHz lot, the most coveted among operators, since it offers greater speed and signal quality.
But while the technology development operations still don’t happen, some cities and neighborhoods have a simplified version of the fifth generation network, which is known as 5G DSS. However, the full potential of 5G will only begin to be realized after operators install antennas and other equipment for the technology infrastructure.
