Brasilia becomes the first city in Brazil to rollout 5G

After months of delays, 5G has now been successfully launched in Brasilia, making the capital the first city in Brazil to offer 5G connectivity

On the 6th of July, 5G was cleared to launch in the capital city, and the new 3.5GHz 5G network has now been successfully introduced. This makes Brasilia the first city in its country to possess 5G connectivity. 

The future for Brazil’s 5G network

This represents a landmark event for Brazil, paving the way for new infrastructure, technological developments and growth opportunities, for both the private and public sectors, across the city. 

And, it is hoped that this will serve as a pilot example, enabling Brazil’s other major cities to quickly follow suit.

But, it hasn’t been an easy road getting here. 

The 3.5GHz frequency spectrum was initially sold in November 2021, at auction. At that time, the target was for all 27 Brazilian state capitals to launch 5G by July 2022.

However, due to the global shortage of semiconductors and clearance delays, this deadline has now been extended to the end of September.

Thanks to its existing infrastructure, which means that less new equipment was required, Brasilia was still able to meet the original deadline.
