In order to expand and improve the network, the carrier acquired assets such as Intelig (2009) and AES Atimus (2011) and implements special project, such as fiber optic network installations in the Northern region of the country, via LT Amazonas, which promoted the digital inclusion of populations in remote areas of the country.

The company also prioritizes transparency in its businesses and client relations. One of the company's milestones was the launch of the Portas Abertas [Open Doors] website in 2012 (, which allows consumers to learn more about TIM coverage, as well as its network improvement and expansion projects.
