With the arrival of 5G internet in Vitória scheduled for August 29, according to the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel), questions arise about how the new signal will work and about the devices to use it.

According to Anatel, the fifth generation of the internet will be available in Brazil only on more recent devices. There are currently 68 cell phones capable of browsing the service. Generally speaking, devices released in the last 12 months support the technology.

Among the manufacturers that have devices capable of working with 5G are Samsung, Xiaomi, Motorola, Apple, Asus, Realme, Nokia, TCL and Infinix. Prices range from R$1,399 to R$10,600 and had an average drop of 30%, according to a survey.

The master in computer networks and professor of information systems at UCL João Paulo Chamon points out that 5G can reach speeds between 1 and 10 Gbps, which, according to him, represents a difference of 100 times or more in relation to 4G.

“Initially, full 5G will not work. A ‘start’ is being given to this technology and gradually, when it is already in operation, readjustments will be made by stage. With 4G it also happened like that”, he says.

Chamon also says that satellite dishes will stop working, as the fifth generation of mobile internet uses the same signal frequency.

“The government will migrate to satellites those who follow open TV programming through satellite dishes, but I have not yet seen it happen in Vitória”.

Pharmacy student Rafaela Rossi, 22, says that her current smartphone is not among the devices able to receive the 5G signal, but says she intends to buy a new one. “I usually change my cell phone every two years, and soon I plan to buy one with the new technology,” she says.

5G internet will be made available by operators Claro, Tim and Vivo, which say they are prepared to operate in the capital of Espírito Santo.

Claro says it will have a robust, state-of-the-art network in the 3.5GHz band. The installations are already advanced, just waiting for the release of the spectrum by Organs responsible bodies.

The operator points out that its 5G coverage will be gradually expanded in the country, “as occurred in other generations of telephony, such as 4.5G, 4G and 3G”.

5G internet can reach speeds between 1 and 10 Gbps, a difference of 100 times or more compared to 4G. But the increase in speed will consequently lead to an increase in mobile internet consumption, according to digital security expert Eduardo Pinheiro.

According to Anatel, the 5G signal should not immediately result in an adjustment in the prices of telephony plans.

“However, as the internet is faster, consumers may end up consuming more and increasing their tariff at the end of the month, depending on the contracted plan”, warns Pinheiro.

The specialist also says that the internet services themselves will demand more data consumption from plans, such as Metaverse, which will be the great villain in the consumption of data plans.

Operators Vivo, Tim and Claro say that consumers’ current plans are compatible with the 5G signal and that there will be no readjustments.

Vivo informs that all plans offered grant access to 5G. Claro says it has more than 2 million compatible smartphones in operation, which represents 4% of its base in the country.
