TIM Establishes a Partnership With Linktel and Increases Wi-Fi Hotspots in Brazil
RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL, Sep 17, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
TIM announced an unprecedented partnership with Linktel Corporate, a
Brazilian Wi-Fi carrier, aiming at increasing its TIM Wi-Fi cell site
in 1,500 hotspots, and expected to reach a total of 10,000 hotspots
in Brazil until the end of this year.
Linktel's network is available in 16 states and includes several
establishments, such as malls, hotels, airports and restaurants. The
company is present in 130 countries through its partnerships and is
already the greatest gateway for visitors from abroad in the use of
Wi-Fi services in Brazil.
"With the expansion of the number of wireless devices connected to
the internet and the growth in the demand for high-speed data
traffic, TIM Wi-Fi is an efficient alternative in the carrier's view,
and, at the same time, it intensifies the browsing experience in the
client's view. The partnership with Linktel brings TIM clients high
hotspots coverage in strategic places, where there is a great demand
for mobile broadband connectivity," says Rafael Marquez, Marketing
Director at TIM Intelig.
"This is an unprecedented initiative. We are offering a safe and
high-tech connection on high level businesses in specific spots for
TIM clients," analyses Jonas Trunk, Linktel Corporate's Chairman.
Just like the whole TIM Wi-Fi network, the service provided in the
partnership with Linktel will be available with no additional cost to
all of the Infinity Web and Liberty Web data plans clients.
TIM Wi-Fi Project in Rio de Janeiro
By the end of last year, TIM installed its first Wi-Fi network,
located in Rocinha, Rio de Janeiro. Afterwards, the company started
the implementation of wireless connectivity in the main airports in
the country, a total of 12 today. The company has already made TIM
Wi-Fi available at Parque Madureira, in Rio's north section, and
announced the beginning of the Wi-Fi coverage project at Sao Januario
stadium, owned by soccer club Vasco da Gama. TIM plans to extend such
initiative to other areas where there is a great population and 3G
traffic concentration, such as communities, hotels, restaurants and
universities. More information can be found at the website:
