Telecom Italia (TIM) has claimed a European first with the launch of a commercial service offering download speeds of up to 500 Mbps using 4.5G technology. The service is already active in Rome, Palermo and Sanremo and can be accessed with the new Sony Xperia XZ smartphone, available to TIM's business and retail customers as an exclusive. The higher speeds are achieved via carrier aggregation, with TIM bundling spectrum from the 800 MHz, 1800 MHz and 2600 MHz bands, as well as the so-called L band (1500 MHz), and increasing spectral efficiency by evolving antenna transmission systems.
