TIM to double landline rates

From 10 to 20 cents a minute

(ANSA) - Rome, February 29 - TIM (formerly known as Telecom Italia) on Monday said it was doubling its landline rates from 10 to 20 cents a minute from April 1. The rates will be to other landlines and to cellphones not covered by special offers, it said. In January Telecom Italia presented a overhaul which will see its brands converge under the name of the one hitherto representing its mobile arm - TIM. The company also presented a new logo with a T icon and the name written in white on a blue background. The move seeks to reposition the group's entire range and simplify the customer experience.
