TIM Brasil to launch HSPA+

1 Oct 2010

Local press reports that TIM Brasil will launch 3.5G HSPA+ technology before the end of the year. Initially, speeds of up to 21Mbps will be available only in the state capital of Sao Paulo. There are plans to expand coverage to other cities throughout 2011. TIM says its 3G network will cover 311 cities by the end of 2010, leaving it in third place in terms of 3G coverage behind Claro and Vivo. The cellco hopes its 2011 expansion programme will bring it closer and possibly pass Claro’s level of coverage.
