It was previously reported that Brazil’s 5G spectrum auction was originally scheduled for March 2020, but due to the pandemic, the auction was postponed. Now, according to the new timetable, it will happen in June 2021.
Huawei is in a leading position in the global 5G ranking and is affiliated with several companies that can provide 5G wireless technology. However, Huawei has been blacklisted in some countries/regions such as the UK and Sweden to provide 5G networks.
According to the latest news, Huawei has appointed former Brazilian President Michel Temer as an advisor to ensure its participation in the spectrum of Brazil’s 5G wireless network. Temer is a professor and lawyer of the Brazilian Constitution, and he will provide legal advice for Huawei to develop 5G business in Brazil.
Last month, a source said that the Brazilian government is looking for a legal way to exclude Huawei from Brazil’s 5G network construction. But in the middle of this month, the Brazilian government’s attitude towards Huawei changed. Now, the Brazilian government will not try to prohibit Huawei from participating in 5G spectrum auctions.
