Brazilian operator Oi plans to launch a "pre-5G" network on the 1800 MHz frequency band, taking advantage of the idle space initially dedicated to 2G mobile telephony. With 5G equipment, this frequency could be used for the provision of fixed wireless broadband (FWA). Oi’s engineering director, Andre Ituassu, confirmed to Mobile Time that there are ongoing studies in this direction, but did not provide further details.

Oi has been modernising its network, adopting a singleRAN architecture, in which multi-purpose works with all frequencies and industry standards.
