TIM’s mission is to connect and care for each customer, so that everyone can accomplish more. To this end, it focuses on the pillars of innovation, customer experience and agility, based on an internal culture of accountability and the change of processes and platforms that allow a digital transformation. The new motto is – “Imagine the possibilities” – is related to a new purpose – “To evolve together with courage, transforming technology into freedom” –, and reinforces the company’s objective of becoming the top telecommunications operator in Brazil.

Since 2015, TIM is leader in 4G coverage in the country and is known as a player in ultra-mobile and fixed broadband. Over the last few years, TIM has upgraded its equipment and made acquisitions – such as Intelig, in 2009, and AES Atimus, in 2011 – reinforcing its commitment to quality and accessibility.

Transparency is also one of the companies’ pillars. TIM is a publicly-held company, whose shares, are listed on São Paulo’s B3 under the ticker symbol TIMP3, and ADRs (American Depositary Receipts), listed on the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) under the ticker symbol TSU. TIM is also the only company in the telecommunications industry listed on B3’s ‘Novo Mercado’, recognized for requiring the maximum level of corporate governance, and is also part of the B3’s Corporate Sustainability Index (“ISE”) and of the S&P/B3 Brasil ESG index. One of its key initiatives is the Open Doors project, which allows consumers to monitor network enhancement and improvement actions, in addition to get to know the true picture of TIM’s coverage. Also worthy of note are the TIM Institute initiatives, which seek to create and maximize strategic resources to make science education and innovation available to everyone in Brazil.

You, your home and your business

Mobile and fixed telephony and access to the Internet via modems, tablets, and mobile phones running on the 3G and 4G technologies, in addition to the ultra-broadband Internet, are the services that are part of TIM’s innovative portfolio. The operator was the first on the market to invest in offering new formats, such as charging for the use of voice and mobile Internet per day or through monthly billing plans paid via credit card. And it continues revolutionizing the market, delivering more benefits and providing more accessible rates to its consumers.

The company also has ideal solutions for small, medium and large businesses. The Corporate Solutions area offers fixed voice and advanced data services to the corporate segment, understanding the corporations’ profiles and needs and enhancing its customers’ productivity and competitiveness while yet decreasing their costs.

In the fixed ultra-Internet segment, TIM Live is a quality benchmark. The carrier introduced on the market navigation plans that are faster than the average Brazilian broadband, thus allowing much faster file downloads and uploads, crash-free gaming, and high-definition, real-time video streaming.
