TIM speeds up with fixed and mobile ultrabroadband, launching a super-fast connection of up to 1,000 Mbps in 70 Italian municipalities and, from July, a speed of up to 700 Mbps on the 4.5G network. This initiative is the result of important investments and the technological upgrade TIM is making to its ultrabroadband network, which currently reaches 67% of homes with fibre and over 97% of the population with the 4G mobile network.
Thanks to the faster spread and consequent use of fibre optic services, TIM makes FTTH (Fiber To The Home) available at an hyper-speed of up to 1,000 Mbps combined with 4.5G, thereby linking the best of fixed and mobile technology together to offer its customers even more advanced services characterized by high quality standards.
With 'Fibre and Mobile', TIM provides its customers with connections of up to 1,000 Mbps in download and 100 Mbps in upload, in 70 municipalities already covered by the FTTH service, and up to 700 Mbps in 11 cities, thanks to 4.5G technology. This performance allows customers to use innovative applications requiring high bandwidth capacity to access premium content with maximum resolution also in HD, listen to music tracks and albums in high quality audio, engage in multiplayer gaming online with a very high network response speed, and use multimedia content at the same time and anywhere, on smartphones, tablets and smart TVs.
All new customers can sign up for this new 'Fibre and Mobile' offer promoted on the web and request Internet connections from 100 to 1,000 Mbps and the Mobile Special option with 1 Giga of traffic up to 4.5G at 19.90 euros/4 weeks for 1 year (thereafter 34.90 euros for a further 3 years).
Thanks to the important investments planned for the three-year period 2017-2019 amounting to around 11 billion euros in Italy, 5 billion of which are dedicated to network innovation, TIM has already provided fibre coverage for over 16 million homes in around 1,900 municipalities, and in 1,300 of them the speed has already been doubled to 200 Mbps, and 70 Mbps with FTTH. As regards the mobile network, after having been the first in Europe to launch the 4.5G commercial service with speeds of up to 500 Mbps in download in 11 Italian cities, from July it will also offer speeds of up to 700 Mbps in download in the cities of Turin, Milan, Naples, Rome and Palermo, Taormina and Giardini-Naxos for all customers with devices that support these speeds. Moreover, TIM has reached a new first: providing all its customers with speeds of up to 75 Mbps in upload, already available with Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ and Sony XPERIA XZ Premium, to improve upload transmission from the device to the network, in particular for services such as updating one's cloud data storage, HD videoconferencing, and streaming live HD videos on social networks.
