Spectrum Policy and Planning


The Telecommunications Law gives Anatel the duty to manage the radio frequency spectrum in Brazil. Anatel is responsible for maintaining an allocating plan that designates radio frequencies for exclusive military purposes (made in conjunction with the Armed Forces), telecommunications services under the public and private regimes, broadcasting services, emergency and public security services, and other telecommunications activities.
In a broader sense, Anatel is responsible for updating the frequency assignment book that includes all uses of spectrum throughout Brazil.
A new regulation on spectrum usage in Brazil was issued by Anatel on April 17, 2001. The regulation sets forth in detail the framework for spectrum usage in Brazil, codifying Anatel’s existing practices.
