The National Telecommunications Agency (in Portuguese, Agência Nacional de Telecomunicações - Anatel) is a special agency in Brazil created by the general telecommunications act (Law 9472, 16/07/1997) in 1997 and governed by Decree 2338 of 07/10/1997. The agency is administratively and financially independent, and not hierarchically subordinate to any government agency. Its decisions can only be appealed in court. From the Ministry of Communications, Anatel has inherited the powers of granting, regulating and supervising telecommunications in Brazil as well as much technical expertise and other material assets.
