TIM announced the arrival of its FTTH (Fiber to the Home) broadband service, TIM Live Ultrafibra, to the Federal District. The technology, which takes optical fiber to the consumer’s home, has plans with speeds of up to 400Mbps and connection stability.
There are 49 thousand covered homes and, with the expansion, the coverage will reach the regions of Taguatinga, Samambaia and Ceilândia. The planning foresees, in the coming months, the expansion to other regions of the Federal District. Implementation at the client’s home during the pandemic will be carried out with all safety precautions, respecting the protocols of the Ministry of Health.
Named as the owner of the highest download and upload speed in the market, it also has the lowest latency, a relevant feature for those who like to play online. Also according to the operator, the new operation is generating more than 300 jobs (direct and indirect) in the areas of network implementation, installation and sales.
Even during the coronavirus pandemic, TIM maintained its launch schedule, following all health safety protocols. In the country, TIM Live surpassed the mark of 600 thousand customers in June 2020, an increase of 20% compared to the same period last year.
With the new cities served, TIM’s broadband is present in more than 30 cities. In the 200 Mega plan, there is a special offer, which offers twice the speed, as long as it is on automatic debit, with a price of R $ 150 per month. The customer who purchases this plan has a complete FOX package and a partnership with the Esporte Interativo channel, in addition to Cartoon Network and Looke.
There are also TIM Games, with more than a thousand options and access to Watch ESPN, which has championships such as NBA and Libertadores. Packages can be purchased at physical stores, business partners and on the dedicated website. Customers of the TIM Controle and TIM Black plans also benefit from an additional internet package (of 2 GB and 4 GB monthly, respectively) in mobile telephony when contracting the service.
The Federal District is a very important market for us and now receives our differentiated wide ultra-band, with high speed and unprecedented entertainment partnerships. Our products bring high quality and stability, and are even recognized, according to research by Estadão and Canaltech 2019, as the best broadband in the country ”
