It’s a pleasure to present a new website with TIM Network numbers, that provides a wide overview of our very valuable assets: TIM fixed and mobile network infrastructure and the people that unceasingly work to improve them.
Networks roll-out and upgrades never end. Just three years ago 28% of households were reached by ultra-broadband services while today, as we write, TIM ultra-broadband fixed network coverage exceeds 78%. Connectivity is the backbone of modern societies. Therefore network roll out and usage data are valuable information that has to be shared with all interested stakeholders: Public Institutions, Local Administrators, Corporations, Industry Players, Customers and all Citizens.
This is why five years ago, at the very early stage of the fiber networks investments cycle, TIM decided to publish the first paper edition of “Netbook – I Numeri della Rete”. For the same reason TIM has now decided to complement its annual printed edition with on-line quarterly updates available on this website. TIM’s recent network separation proposal, put forward before the National Regulatory Authority AGCOM, pointedly aims at further improving and ensuring the very best level of network non-discrimination guarantees to all market players. The significant level of detail provided by the website enhances transparency and strengthens TIM’s accountability. The more accurate are the data and the wider the range of stakeholders that can access them the greater are going to be the benefits for the system as a whole.
National digitalization processes are very complex and fragmented issues. National averages data do not provide a sufficient level of detail. To recognize local best practices and deliver efficient context-specific solutions we need geographically split up information: we need Netbook with its more than 7000 figures and its 107 maps. Mobile and fixed networks have been our raison d’etre for decades. Networks are part of who we are and what we do. Just over the last three years we have invested over nine billion euros to enhance networks’ performances and capillarity. Failing to exploit their potential would be an unthinkable breach of duty not just towards ourselves but also towards those from whom we have inherited them. Disclosing the inner structures and architectures of TIM networks is one the ways with which we wish to strengthen the value of an asset which is a heritage of our Country.
Technological, transparent, reliable and devoted to its customers: this is DigiTIM, a company that is willing to take the responsibility of leading the Italian digitalization journey.
Netbook is part of “TIM per l’Italia”, a broader set of initiatives aimed at enhancing the value of TIM’s activities for the Italian social and economic growth.
