TIM Brasil and Intelsat extend 4G to underserved Brazil
TIM Brasil’s Sky Coverage project has been extended to take its 4G services to new locations – some lacking in not only fibre, but electricity. TIM launched Sky Coverage to cover districts, localities, highways, and resorts, using satellite connection in remote areas. Through this connectivity for the agribusiness sector is expanded, especially for equipment and investments in Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. There are currently more than 1,000 sites in this project and one of the objectives of the project is to deliver connectivity “sustainably through off-grid sites to more distant areas of Brazil, where there is a deficit in electricity grid infrastructure”. TIM Brasil has the largest satellite network in Latin America and its network reliability and high coverage will allow TIM to provide even more quality services to customers in these regions with difficult access and connectivity challenges.
