TIM 4G

The company launched 4G LTE in November 2012 using B3 (1800 MHz). The network was upgraded to LTE-Advanced in July 2014 with 2C aggregation of a B7 (2600 MHz) carrier. By mid-November 2015 the company had successfully rolled out B20 (800 MHz) in 3C aggregation, providing a 300 Mbps peak DL service.

TIM Italy implemented gigabit LTE-A Pro in October 2016 by adding a 20 MHz B32 (1500 MHz) supplemental downlink carrier, with 256QAM across the network. In February 2018 its partnership with Huawei saw the company implement 4x4 MIMO with Huawei's flagship 1+1 antenna design.

TIM Italia 5G

After extensive 5G testing, in June 2019 TIM announced the launch of a limited 5G network in parts of Rome and Turin. Download data rates of up to 2 Gbps are being advertised, with upload speeds up to 300 Mbps. In July 2019 TIM advised 5G was live in Naples and announced its plans to extend 5G coverage to the Italian cities of Matera, Bari, Milan, Bologna, Verona, and Florence by years end.

TIM Italy IoT

In October 2017 TIM announced the commercial launch of its NB-IoT network, operating over the company's B20 (800 MHz) carrier.
