ANNEX TO RESOLUTION Nº 387 OF NOVEMBER 3, 2004

Regulation for Charging of Public Price for the Right to Use Radiofrequencies

CHAPTER I

Miscellaneous

Section I

Subject Matter

Article 1. This Regulation aims to govern the payment for the right to use radiofrequency referred to in article 48 of Law nº 9472, of July 16, 1997, as provided for in article 17, XXXII, of Decree nº 2338, of October 7, 1997, and to establish a calculation method for amounts to be paid.

Section II

Definitions

Article 2. For the purposes of this Regulation, the following definitions shall apply:

I - Point-to-area bidirectional applications: include point-to-multipoint applications, they are those in which the communication can be made by fixed or mobile terminal stations, from any point within a given geographical coverage area, directly with other terminal stations or with a specific nodal basic or spatial station.

II - Point-to-area unidirectional applications: it refers to those in which the reception of a transmitting station at any point within a given geographical coverage area is planned.

III - Point-to-point applications: it refers to those where two fixed stations communicate with each other.

IV - Exclusive use: it refers to the form of use in which, within a given geographical area, a frequency range is the subject of a single authorization.

V - Non-exclusive use: refers to the form of use in which, within a given geographical area, a frequency range can be subject to more than one authorization.

Section III

Application

Article 3. This Regulation applies to all individuals or legal entities that use radiofrequencies, except for the following cases in which the Public Price for the Right to Use Radiofrequency is not levied:

I - use of radiofrequency by means of equipment of restricted radiation defined by the Agency;

II - use of radiofrequencies by the Armed Forces exclusively for military purposes;

III - the temporary use of radiofrequency by Diplomatic Missions, Representations of International Bodies and Consular Offices, including foreign military vessels and aircrafts visiting Brazil; and

IV - authorization granted and issued due to the transfer of right to use radiofrequencies.

Paragraph 1. This Regulation does not apply when it is explicitly established that the amount for the right to use radiofrequencies will be defined according to the provisions of Paragraph 1, II, III and IV, of article 48 of Law nº 9472, of 1997.

Paragraph 2. Unless otherwise provided at the moment of the grant, this Regulation must be used to establish the amount for the right to use radiofrequency, upon time extensions of the respective authorizations.

CHAPTER II

Amount to be paid

Section I

Formula to calculate the reference amount

Article 4. The reference amount for the right to use radiofrequency is obtained by means of the following formula:

P = K x B x A0.1 x T x F(f),

which parameters have the following meaning:

P = reference amount for the right to use radiofrequencies, in Reais;

K = radiofrequency cost factor;

B = bandwidth to be authorized, in kHz;

A = area in which the frequency will be used, in km2;

T = factor referring to the time of use;

F = frequency factor, according to the expression below;

f = central frequency of the operation frequencies band, in kHz.

For a central frequency lower or equal to 1.5 GHz:

F(f) = 0.05 + 0.011 x 10-6 x ( log ( f / 1,500,000 ) )²

For central frequency higher than 1.5 GHz:

F(f) = 0.001 + 0.06 x 10-6 x ( log ( f / 1,500,000 ) )²

Section II

Values of parameters

Article 5. In the event of exclusive use, the amount of the bandwidth “B” to be used in the formula is the amount of the total authorized range and, in the case of non-exclusive use, the amount to be considered is the amount of the authorized bandwidth as per the issuance designation.

Sole paragraph. For bandwidths lower than 1 kHz, in the formula provided under article 4, the value of 1 kHz will be considered  for parameter “B”.

Article 6. In the case of exclusive use, the amount of the area “A” to be used in the formula is the amount of the region for which the service was granted or the area limited by the protected contour of the station and, in the case of non-exclusive use, the amount of area “A” will be the one indicated in the grant or, if there is no such indication, the amount of the area will be the amount of the surface defined by the circular sector of radius “d” and aperture “α”, i.e.:

A = πd2 x α/360

where, in point-to-point systems, "d" is the distance in km between the involved stations and "α" is the half power angle of the radius system in degrees. For the point-to-area systems, the distance "d" to be considered is the longest distance in km covered by the base or nodal station.

Paragraph 1. In any event, the surface to be considered to calculate the area will be limited to the national territory, including the Brazilian territorial sea.

Paragraph 2. The minimum amount of this area will be 1 km2.

Article 7. In the case of ground-space feed links for satellite communications systems, the amount of area “A” to be considered is the amount of the coordination area, established in accordance with the procedures described in Appendix 7, of the Radio-communications Regulation of the International Telecommunication Union – ITU.

Article 8. The amount of frequency "f" to be used in the formula is the average between the minimum and maximum authorized frequencies amounts and, in the case of use of a specific channel, such amount will be equal to the amount of the carrier frequency of said channel.

Article 9. Factor "T" considers, in addition to the total daily use time "T1" in hours, the validity term "T2" in years from the authorization to use the radiofrequency, which is calculated according to the following formula:

T = (T1/24) x (T2/20)

Paragraph 1. For daily use times shorter than one (1) hour, the amount of one (1) hour will considered for "T1".

Paragraph 2. For fractional periods of validity of authorization the next higher whole value for “T2” will be considered.

Paragraph 3. For the authorization to use radiofrequency granted between July 16, 1997 and November 23, 1998, still in force up to the latter date, which price for the right to use radiofrequency was not determined or established by article 48, paragraph 1, II, III or IV of Law nº 9472/1997, the amount of "T2" will be equal to the remaining term of the authorization, in years, for the purposes of the calculations under this Regulation.

Article 10. The cost factor "K" is defined taking into consideration the manner of use of the spectrum, exclusive or not, and the character of interest of the service, collective or restricted, according to table I below:

Section III

Amounts to pay

Article 11. The amount to be paid for the right to use radiofrequency shall be obtained by applying the formula below:

V = P x C x D x E

Where:

V = the amount to be paid for the right to use radiofrequency;

P = reference amount for the right to use radiofrequencies, calculated on article 4.

C = 0.6, for stations of the Mass Communications Services and Radio Broadcasting Services; and 1.0, for the temporary use of radiofrequencies and for stations of the remaining services.

D = 0.3, for service stations with scientific purpose; and 1.0, for the temporary use of radiofrequencies and for the stations of the remaining services.

E = 1, for point-to-point systems and, pursuant to table III, for point-to-area systems.
