700 MHz: Teles reforçam lobby no Brasil

In 2012 Brazilian operators enter the lobby reinforcing the use of the 700 MHz band in a statement, the SindiTelebrasil with data from the International Telecommunication Union, emphasizes that without the 700 MHz band for mobile services are reduced the chances of the Brazil is aligned with the world market and without the economies of scale, suffer from the rising costs of products and services, creating a barrier to the process of massification of broadband.
The organization points out that in several countries, 700 MHz is already used for mobile services. Example cited is that of Australia, which has already announced this year an auction of licenses using this frequency band, known as the Digital Dividend, aligning itself to the world trend of use and harmonization of radio spectrum. The main argument of the regulatory agency of Australia is the growing demand for mobile broadband services in that country, which is expected to increase 35 times from 2009 to 2015.
Bringing this growth in demand for Brazil, SindiTelebrasil maintains that the use of the 700 MHz band for mobile services in Brazil will mean multiple benefits for users of telecommunications, especially in the massification of broadband and increase the capacity of data transmission. Allow an increase of average Brazilian Internet connection, with the deployment of fourth generation mobile (4G), and a better service to tourists in international sporting events like the FIFA World Cup 2014 and the 2016 Olympics . According to data from GSM, Latin America, data traffic is expected to increase 38 times by 2015.
Also according to the SindiTelebrasil with the digitalization of television, according to the adoption of the standard SBTVD, the release of the 700 MHz band can now occur immediately in more than 90% of Brazilian municipalities, where there are no TV channels in that band, especially in rural areas, where there is a growing demand for broadband.
The union, which brings together operators, argued that using the 700 MHz band is important for the popularization of broadband because it allows the signal from the antennas of mobile phones have longer range. Thus, there is a reduction in network deployment costs, resulting in lower prices for consumers. In addition, it enables the provision of internet connection at high speed through the 4G technology, which greatly increases the download speed in relation to 3G technology, currently used and increases the capacity of data transmission.
The organization also noted that the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) recommended the use of the 700 MHz band for mobile services and that guidance is being followed by several countries. The Inter-American Telecommunication Commission (CITEL), comprising representatives of government and the private sector in all countries of the Americas last month approved an additional conduit arrangement for use of the 700 MHz band for mobile services. Using the same technology for a greater number of people causes a drop in equipment costs, with the so-called economy of scale, which reduces the price of the terminal access to the consumer.
