The company operates landline telephone services in Italy, GSM mobile phone services in Italy and Brazil through its TIM subsidiary, and DSL internet and telephony services under the brand Alice in Italy, Germany,[2] France, San Marino and the Netherlands. It also owns a stake in Telecom Argentina.
