Anatel Approves Structural Plan For Telecom Networks, Proposes Funding Reform

Brazil’s National Telecommunication Agency (Anatel) approved the Structural Plan of Telecommunication Networks (PERT) with the aim of expanding broadband access. The plan includes an assessment of Brazil’s telecom infrastructure and presents projects to overcome deficiencies. It was subject to public consultation before becoming final.

The expansion of transport networks and access networks and implementation of essential public networks are planned, as is the implementation of communication networks for essential public services. The plan proposes the expansion of fibre services, and in cities where it is not viable, by means of high-capacity satellite connections or other technologies. The plan will guide in Anatel in setting regulatory obligations and their goals, including possible financing for network projects and coverage.

The agency also approved its proposal reforming the so-called FUST law and sent this to the Ministry of Communications. Anatel said the FUST fund is still the best method to ensure sufficient financing for the expansion of services and the reform should ensure that it works better. Changes proposed include expanding the fund to broadband projects, naming the BNDES as financing partner, using the structural plan to guide policies, naming a management board for the fund and the possibility of financing incentives for operators that execute projects approved by the new board.
