Brazilian ISP Brisanet started selling 5G mobile services in parts of the Northeast this week. According to TeleTime, sales have commenced in Pereiro (Ceara) and Sao Miguel (Rio Grande do Norte), but 2.3GHz connectivity is actually available in twelve cities, with around 400,000 people covered. Going forward, Brisanet expects to offer coverage to five million people in 40 municipalities by December this year.
TeleGeography notes that the Ceara-based ISP acquired a trio of 5G concessions in 2021’s multi-band spectrum auction: a pair of 80MHz 3.5GHz licences covering the Northeast and Midwest, plus a 50MHz block of 2.3GHz spectrum covering the Northeast. Huawei was selected as Brisanet’s 5G vendor in May 2022.
