Brazil's telecom regulator Anatel has debuted PGMU III, a new policy document that is set on enabling the country to meet its universal service access goals.
Although the plan will cost participating service providers $1.7 billion to put in place, Anatel said there will be a $968.3 million bonus due to adjustments made between the PGMU II and PGMU III's goals.
Overall, the goal of PGMU II and PGMU III, which will cover network infrastructure and maintenance costs between 2011-2015, is to improve telecom services in the country's rural and economically challenged areas.
