Participants will be able to enjoy high definition multimedia contents on the move using the LTE internet usb keys provided by TIM during this 5-day event.

TIM is bringing LTE technology to Milan: LTE boasts upload and download connection speeds of 50Mbit/s and 100Mbit/s respectively, allowing users to enjoy high definition multimedia services and contents simultaneously. 

Users can test the network’s potential in two TIM shops in Milan: from 16th to 18th April in “Via Moscova” and from 19th to 21st April in “Piazza Cardusio”.

TIM is Italy’s first mobile network provider to have organised a series of events and experiments developed for and open to the public. The aim is to accustom people to using and testing the internet of the future. Moreover by organizing this event, TIM confirms its technological leadership in the mobile network sector.

The new LTE internet usb keys have been connected and configured in Ultrabroadband mode so that users may enjoy on-the-move services such as: HD video streaming, on demand contents, file transfers and hassle-free web surfing.

This initiative is part of Telecom Italia’s project to develop a new generation national mobile network. Telecom Italia has already invested 1.2 billion euros to buy the 800, 1800 and 2600MHz frequencies confirming the company’s aim to develop and offer technologically advanced services capable of answering the ever increasing demand from mobile phone, smartphone, tablet and internet usb-key users.

Similar initiatives, which anticipate the commercial launch of LTE services on the market, have already taken place in Turin and Rome and will continue in other main Italian cities.
