2014 World Cup host cities in Brazil get 4G upgrade priority

The people of North America have been reaping the benefits of super-fast mobile internet access through the 4G LTE since it launched around December time last year. Since then it has slowly been spreading to surrounding areas and South America are getting the tastes of it now.

Today’s news reveals that when World Cup 2014 hosts Brazil finally get the high-speed service upgrade that is long overdue as it is, the twelve cities where the actual matches for the event will take place, will get first priorities.

The news comes from an article at Google which explains how the network benefits will be gradually integrated into the other cities too. A specific date is yet to be confirmed although it’s safe to assume it will be within the next three years as that’s when the World Cup begins.

Artur Coimbra de Oliveira, a Communication Ministry official says that companies in the country will undergo bidding processes in order to establish which will get the service. You can read more about the 4G upgrade in the full article by clicking the link above.
