The Federal Court of Auditors (TCU) votes on August 18, at 10 a.m., the opinion of the 5G auction. The decision was taken by the president of the court, Ana Arraes, in response to a request from the minister of the report, Raimundo Carreiro.
The 5G proposal was approved by the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) in February, but has been under review by TCU since March. Analysis was delayed due to differences between TCU technical area, Federal government and Anatel.
Communications Minister Fábio Faria defended holding the 5G auction in July, but in June Anatel sent the clarifications and documents to TCU for analysis.
