TIM to launch EDGE

29 Mar 2004

Telecom Italia Mobile (TIM) said that from the start of next month it will launch mobile data transmission services based on the EDGE protocol – the first Italian operator to do so. The company has said that it will use EDGE as a stepping stone to the development of full UMTS services, which it is planning to roll out to a section of its corporate subscribers in June and to the general public by Christmas.
