TIM said it has reached the milestone of 2,500 Italian municipalities with fixed line ultrabroadband services, with a maximum download speed of between 100 and 1,000 Mbps.
The Operator is now covering ultrabroadband services to 80% of the country with over 19 million homes reached. Thanks to FTTC and EVDSL technology, around 1,800 municipalities already benefit from connections with download speeds of up to 200 Mbps, while already 116 municipalities – including 30 major cities – enjoy speeds of up to 1 Gigabit with super-fast FTTH connections, providing total coverage of over 2.9 million homes.
Between now and 2020, TIM said it will continue to develop ultrabroadband networks, making FTTH ultrabroadband connections available in further locations, and reach up to 100 major municipalities. The first 5G services will also be launched following the success of technological trials and the installation of the first new generation antennas already active in Turin, San Marino, Bari and Matera (in these last two cities in collaboration with Fastweb and Huawei).
