Tuesday 30 October 2012 | 17:17 CET | News
Mobile operator TIM Brasil announced that equipment manufacturers Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia Siemens Networks will be the suppliers of its 4G infrastructure. The operator said that it signed contracts with the three companies to implement LTE technology, but did not mention any financial details. The timetable established by the Brazilian government gives operators a deadline of April 2013 to launch 4G services. 

TIM's director of supply and logistics, Daniel Hermeto, estimates the company will invest over BRL 350 million in infrastructure for the 4G network in 2013. In an interview with Reuters, he said that TIM plans to commercially launch 4G services in the second half of the first quarter of 2012 in the host cities of the Confederation Cup, in line with the government requirements. The cities that will host the football competition are Rio de Janeiro, Brasília, Salvador, Recife, Fortaleza and Belo Horizonte.
