Fixed and mobile operator Telecom Italia, which trades under the TIM banner, has announced the launch of 300Mbps LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) services in Rome. The 4G+ service will be launched in additional cities in the coming weeks, the telco says, though the only device from TIM currently supporting the enhanced download rates is the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+. As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, in July this year TIM completed trials of tri-band carrier aggregation (3CA) technology with Ericsson and Qualcomm, using frequencies in the 800MHz, 1800MHz and 2600MHz bands. The cellco introduced 4G LTE services in November 2012 and went on to launch LTE-A, offering speeds up to 220Mbps, two years later.
