Italy's Telecom announces start of 4G era

(ANSA) – Milan, October 16 – Italian telecommunications provider Telecom Italia announced on Tuesday the launch of 4G services in four cities slated for November 7. From that date mobile ultra-broadband Internet access will be available to customers in Milan, Rome, Turin and Naples, before being extended to a further 16 cities by the end of the year. Telecom will initially use its 1800Mhz frequencies for 4G services pending the release of those in the more sought-after 800Mhz band, with outdoor coverage of over 80%. Indoor coverage will initially be less but "it is a journey," said Telecom CEO Marco Patuano, suggesting that the company's competitors may not be far behind.
