TIM Brasil to unveil new Wi-Fi network provider this week

24 May 2012

Brazilian telco TIM Participacoes (TIM Brasil) will announce the winner of a contract to supply it with a new Wi-Fi network by the end of this week, says its chief marketing officer Rafael Marquez, as quoted by Telecompaper. According to Marquez, the firm has arrived at a shortlist for the new system, which is designed to alleviate network bottlenecks in areas of high traffic volume. The Wi-Fi network will comprise 10,000 hotspots deployed in areas with known issues where it comes to high traffic volumes, and is one of the measures being undertaken by TIM Brasil ahead of the FIFA World Cup. Once operational, the new network will be available to subscribers on the operator’s Liberty Web and Infinity Web plans, but it is also provisioning areas for free internet browsing.
