On January 17 it was signed the Resolution through the Federal Telecommunications Commission (COFETELl) classifies as unlicensed the frequency 5470-5600 MHz and 5650-5725 MHz bands, and sets the operating conditions that systems and devices must comply with for operation in these bands.
”The Resolution considers it desirable that the frequency bands of the radio spectrum between 5470-5600 MHz and 5650-5725 MHz spectrum are classified as free to use. COFETEL states convenience to declare unlicensed the frequency bands 5470-5600 MHz and 5650-5725 MHz, and resolved:
FIRST. It is classified as unlicensed, the bands of radio spectrum frequencies from 5.470 to 5.600 MHz and 5.650 to 5.725 MHz, so it may be used by the general public without license, permit or registration for radio local area networks.
SECOND. It remains to use frequency bands identified bands from 5.600 to 5.650 MHz in terms of “agreement which sets policy for broadband services and other applications in the frequency bands of radio spectrum 902 to 928 MHz; 2.400 to 2483.5 MHz, 3.600 to 3700 MHz, from 5.150 to 5.250 MHz, 5.250 to 5.350 MHz, 5.470 to 5.725 MHz and 5.725 to 5.850 MHz” published on March 13, 2006 in the Official Gazette.”
