TIM Brasil activates 4G on 700 MHz in 7 cities

Monday 3 July 2017 | 11:26 CET | News
TIM Brasil activated the 4G network in the 700 MHz band in Recife, Fortaleza, Maceio, Natal, Macapa, Boa Vista and Rio Branco, reports Diario de Pernambuco. This follows the release of the spectrum previously used by broadcasters in cities where the analogue switch-off has taken place. Coverage in the 700 MHz band is four times greater than in the 2.600 MHz band and also enables better reception in indoor environments, TIM said. According to CTO Leonardo Capdeville, in Fortaleza and Recife the operator's 4G indoor coverage will go up from 50 to over 95 percent.
