During a live for employees this Friday (10), Pietro Labriola, president of TIM, announced that the operator will implement the 5G network in the DSS standard, which shares the 4G network infrastructure to work, in the cities of Bento Gonçalves (RS), Itajubá (MG) and Três Lagoas (MS). The company will use technologies from Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia to adapt the current system.
The technical specifications of the company’s 5G have not been revealed, however, with the only details announced being compatibility with all 5G phones on the market. The operator displayed advertisements for the Motorola Edge, the first compatible device in the country to start selling on the 14th, indicating a partnership similar to that adopted by Claro.
Taking advantage of the implementation of the new connection, TIM will also offer fixed broadband internet through Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) technology, which provides high speeds based on the structure of the mobile network. Labriola also revealed that the company will reformulate its prepaid and control plans, aiming to offer more convenience and new experiences.
Another highlight of the presentation was the revelation of the expansion of the partnership with C6 Bank. Now, customers and prospects of TIM Controle plans will receive a 4GB bonus in the franchise when opening a digital account at the financial institution, while subscribers of TIM Beta will be entitled to the same bonus when making a recharge through the bank’s app.
