July launch for TIM’s 700Mbps LTE-A

28 Jun 2017

Italian fixed line and mobile operator Telecom Italia (TIM) is preparing to introduce 700Mbps LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) services next month in Turin, Milan, Rome, Naples, Palermo, Taormina and Giardini-Naxos. It says the new high speed mobile service will complement its recently launched 1Gbps fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) product, which has been made available this week to customers in 70 municipalities. A new ‘Fibre and Mobile’ package is being implemented to tempt users to sign up for the two new ultra-broadband offers.

TIM carried out its first trials of 700Mbps connections in April this year in conjunction with Qualcomm and Ericsson, after having introduced a 500Mbps LTE-A service back in December 2016. The telco says its fibre infrastructure now passes 67% of Italian homes, while its 4G networks reach 97% of the population.
