Brazil's telecommunications regulator Anatel is reviewing fees charged by wireless carriers to connect calls from competitors' networks and charges for voice and data roaming within the country, Communications Minister Paulo Bernardo said.

The ministry plans to ask President Dilma Rousseff to approve a plan to open ducts in public infrastructure such as energy and sanitation lines for phone companies to install fiber networks, Bernardo said today in Brasilia. Anatel aims to reach 70 percent of households with high-speed Internet by 2014, he said.
