TIM Brasil and Ecovias do Araguaia, concessionaire of EcoRodovias, ASTM Group’s Brazilian subsidiary, announce a partnership to install 4G coverage along 850-km Goiás and Tocantins road in Brazil.
The project includes a connection that will cover 33 municipalities, 88 schools, 31 hospitals and numerous local production facilities by the end of 2024. To date, the mobile phone signal is only active on about 20% of the motorways between Alliance do Tocantins (TO) and Anapolis (GO). TIM Brasil will provide 4G coverage on the country's longest section of motorway. The project has a particular focus on supporting road safety by partnering with EcoRodovias to provide reliable and sustainable infrastructure across the region. The project is one step towards achieving ASTM Group's goal of guaranteeing safe, technologically advanced, resilient and sustainable infrastructures.
Work on the installation of 4G will begin at the end of this year and the project is scheduled to be completed by September 2024.
