Monday 7 September 2020 | 09:15 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM) has again claimed leadership in the European "5G innovation" space by exceeding 4 Gbps on a live 5G commercial network on a permanent basis in partnership with Ericsson and Qualcomm. The speed was achieved in a Rome trial that doubled the speed reached by the same partners earlier this year. TIM again used the 26 GHz band spectrum it acquired in Italy's record-breaking tender of 5G frequencies held in 2018.
