Mon February, 2021, Age: 3 years
On Friday, Brazil published guidelines for its upcoming 5g spectrum auction to build a security wireless network for use by the government and military. The guidelines did not block Huawei from participating in the auction as some had anticipated it would. The apparent decision to allow Huawei to participate in the auction, which will be held in 2021, comes as Brazil struggles to obtain Chinese supplies and materials required to produce a Chinese engineered vaccine against coronavirus. Brazil has the world’s second highest number of Covid related fatalities.
