TIM reaches 2,500 locations with 100Mbps services

11 Oct 2018

Telecom Italia (TIM) says it has reached 2,500 municipalities with its ‘ultra-broadband’ rollout which offers fixed internet connectivity at speeds of between 100Mbps and 1Gbps. This equates to around 19 million homes or 80% territorial coverage, the telco says. The bulk of TIM’s network consists of fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) infrastructure combined with copper-based EVDSL last-mile links which can offer connection speeds of up to 200Mbps, but it is also pushing its full fibre rollout. It has fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) networks passing some 2.9 million premises currently, allowing it to provide gigabit speeds, and plans to have 100 large cities covered by FTTH by 2020, up from 30 at present.
