19 Jul 2011

Brazilian operator TIM Brasil is looking to spend BRL171 million (USD109 million) to roll out a fibre-optic network capable of delivering voice, data and broadband services covering 27 municipalities in Amazonas, Para and Amapa states. It is understood the telco has already inked agreements with local companies to share infrastructure, as part of the deal. Work on the project, which will result in a hundred-fold increase in voice and data capacity, will commence in October 2011, with a scheduled completion date of 2013.
