TIM and Ericsson activate 5G antennas in Sanremo

Tuesday 5 February 2019 | 09:32 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM) has announced that the Ligurian coastal town of Sanremo has been converted into one of the first Italian localities with 5G coverage after it switched on antennas supporting the "Massive-MIMO" technology of its partner Ericsson. The network uses the 3.7GHz frequencies acquired by TIM in the recent national 5G spectrum tender and the antennas dynamically adapt to the position of individual users and traffic demand, said the company, adding that tests using smartphones equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G chipset have already been conducted in the town.
