Following a decision from Arcep, starting this summer mobile operators will be required to publish coverage maps that distinguish those areas with very good coverage, good coverage, limited coverage and no coverage for mobile calling and SMS services. These more detailed coverage maps will make it possible to reflect the reality of the user experience more accurately.
With these new maps, Arcep hopes to spur operators to further improve their mobile coverage. The aim is to use of heavy dose of transparency to re-orientate the basis of competition between operators, so that it not be focused solely on prices but also on network performance. These enhanced coverage maps are also a starting point: by identifying those areas where coverage is limited a clear diagnosis is delivered, and so opening the way for discussions over future coverage needs
