How ABRINTEL, the Brazilian towerco association, is working to ease the permitting of new cell sites
In spite of the new Lei das Antenas, easing the regulatory framework is still key for local towercos
The Associação Brasileira de Infraestrutura para as Telecomunicações (ABRINTEL) was created back in 2013 with the goal to gather and represent tower companies across the country. Its members include top executives from Brazilian towercos with the common goal to give a strong voice to the industry and strengthen its position in the country.
I have recently spoken with Lourenço Pinto Coelho, the President of the Board of the association, who shared with TowerXchange insights into ABRINTEL’s role in Brazil, commented on the Lei das Antenas and on the overall status of the Brazilian tower industry.
TowerXchange: Please tell us about ABRINTEL, its mission and current organisation
Lourenço Pinto Coelho, President, ABRINTEL:
ABRINTEL has the mission to educate regulatory bodies, the government as well as the civil society on the importance of a stable and transparent regulatory environment.
