5G technology, whose forecast to be available in its pure form in Brazilian capitals is by July, has plans with higher costs than 4G plans: about R$ 250 per month

Initially, the price of plans with 5G technology should remain the same as 4G plans, as users will benefit from 5G DSS technology, which uses 4G frequencies in order to reach the speeds of 5G technology. The forecast for the availability of pure 5G technology (standalone call) is for 2023, when prices will actually rise.

According to Folha de S. Paulo, only the standardization of technology is capable of making the values ​​of handsets and chips go down, and consequently the plans will become more accessible. It is estimated that, in three years, accesses between business and residential subscribers will reach 500 million.

Agribusiness and industry, initially, will be the main consumers of 5G technology, according to executives from Vivo and Claro, who estimate that companies will modernize with the new technology.

According to the president of Conexis, Marcos Ferrari, 5G technology will be disseminated in society through applications in the productive sector and smartphones: “Its massification will take place through investments and fulfillment of the obligations of the public notice”, he points out. “They will mainly come from companies that are consolidated in the market, as has been the case in countries that have already started to roll out 5G.”

The president of the TIM telephone company, Pietro Labriola, says that the consequences arising from the 5G technology will completely change the economic panorama of Brazil. “5G will revolutionize economic activity and provide unprecedented momentum. The expectation is that the services are in the capitals before the initial deadline (stipulated by Anatel for mid-2022). We are prepared to start”, said Labriola.

What's new in 5G technology

5G technology has several innovations. Due to the low response time (latency) and high speeds made available by pure 5g, there will be more resources for transport and logistics services. In agriculture, it will be possible to know which areas of cultivation need more water or fertilizer through sensors. In addition, it will be possible to predict the harvest through drone images.

In telemedicine, the technology may be included in surgeries. In cities, it will be possible to remotely control traffic, water, sanitation and light. In Curitiba, for example, intelligent solutions to control traffic lights are already being studied. Thus, the waiting time would no longer be predefined, but proportional to the movement of vehicles.

A study by Omni recommends that the Brazilian Gross Domestic Product (GDP) should increase by BRL 6,5 trillion by 2030, if all 5G technology applications are implemented in the country. Operators Vivo, Claro and TIM assume investments of around BRL 150 billion in the creation of 5G networks over the next 8 years.
