TIM announced a new promotion on the broadband service TIM Live Ultrafibra. The operator will sell the plan at a speed of 400 Mb / s for R $ 127.50 for one year for payment by automatic debit. Those who opt for the conventional billet will have a maximum speed of 200 Mb / s.
So are the plans:
(300 MB for one year)
|R $ 125.00|
(400 MB for one year)
|R $ 127.50|
Considering the double speed, TIM’s plans are good. See the competitor’s options:
- The Claro NET has a 240 Mb / s plan for R $ 129.90 for the first two months and R $ 169.90 for the third month;
- The Hi sells the speed of 400 Mb / s for R $ 149.90 per month, also with automatic debit payment;
- The Live has a speed of 300 Mb / s at a monthly cost of R $ 169.99.
TIM Live has 400 Mb / s for one year
The big asterisk is that TIM’s broadband plans are “promotional”, with speed doubled for 12 months. Originally the operator sells packages with 150 Mb / s and 200 Mb / s, but gives twice the internet for a year only to those who pay the invoice in automatic debit.
It is common for broadband operators to make promotions at double speed for a period of time, but TIM’s case is a little different because the 300 Mb / s and 400 Mb / s plans do not exist. Those who cannot pay using automatic debit simply cannot hire 400 Mb / s – even if it is more expensive – and are restricted to 200 Mb / s of the contract.
Packages also include application subscription: all plans have Sport Interactive Plus and Cartoon Network Now; whoever signs the 150 Mb / s package is entitled to Looke, while 200 Mb / s broadband users can enjoy the ESPN and Fox App.
It is important to remember that these plans are only available in regions with optical fiber coverage (FTTH). In the locations served by copper (xDSL) the maximum speed offered by TIM Live is 60 Mb / s download and 30 Mb / s upload.
Anatel data show that TIM ended the month of August 2020 with 635.1 thousand fixed broadband customers, of which 57.9% use xDSL technology and 42% are connected using FTTH optical fiber. The service is present in the states of Amazonas, Bahia, Federal District, Goiás, Minas Gerais, Pernambuco, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.
