From its previous TDMA cellular network, TIM has completely switched to 100% digital GSM mobile coverage operating under the 900/1800 MHz frequency across Brazil. Today, TIM runs about 16,200 km of fiber-optic cables spread throughout Brazil, which means unparalleled nationwide coverage all across the country.
The mobile carrier now operates in over 2,900 cities and 2,150 towns with its GSM, GPRS, EDGE, and 3G coverage in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Brasilia, Curitiba, Fortaleza, Porto Alegre, Recife, and other cities. Since 2009, TIM's subscriber base has grown from 37.8 million to 42 million.
In terms of the mobile network's cellular services, TIM offers both postpaid and prepaid plans at competitive calling, texting, and data transfer rates that appeal to the general Brazilian market. And with its prepaid plans, TIM has gained more popularity among customers who prefer pay-as-you-go mobile services that require no yearly contracts, monthly bills, or other one-time penalties not directly related to the actual mobile usage of subscribers.
