Abstract The debate surrounding the choice of digital TV format in Brazil resulted in a sense of expectation on its innovative aspects of broadcasting. After choosing the ISDB-T format though, as anticipated by analysts, Brazil has been facing the challenge of developing lower cost set-top boxes to take advantage of main Japanese format features: mobility and spectrum availability for interactive applications. In this scenario, this talk will address how recent telecommunication regulation in Brazil is dealing with new trends on mobile use of fixed phone networks by unlicensed devices and how these trends are related to a thriving mobile technology: fixed wireless access.
