Anatel Releases Sales and Activations of Sim Cards
Anatel, after reviewing our Action Plan for Improvement of Rendering of Personal Mobile Service (SMP), has released sales and activations of sim cards in 18 states and the Federal District, where sales were banned. The decision was based on the Action Plan presented by the company and approved by Anatel which will monitor its completion closer and through regular inspections.
TIM is developing a set of infrastructure projects to continue to offer innovative services to customers, supporting the growth and capturing opportunities that the market offers. The Action Plan sent to Anatel, highlighted among other factors, the development designed to improve Network (increase 75% of network voice capacity) and Caring:
The great effort of the first half of 2012 was for investment in network infrastructure and the integration of TIM's mobile network with the fiber optic network of TIM Fiber. In this period, investments totaled R$ 1.6 billion (+56% over the same period of 2011). For the triennium 2012-14, the Company projected investments totaling R$ 9.5 billion (including licenses).
In 2012, according to the injunction, TIM redistributed investment, allocating R$ 451 million for projects intended for Quality Improvement.
Given the above mentioned we reaffirm that TIM is ready to resume its commercial activities immediately.
