Arcep publishes its first quarterly scorecard on the New Deal for mobile
Launch date:27 June 2018
Modified at:21 January 2019
In 2017, at the Government’s request, Arcep began working with mobile operators and local authorities on achieving the goal of accelerating the pace of regional mobile coverage, notably for 4G networks. Once this work was complete, an historic agreement was announced between the Government, Arcep and operators.
Among other things, this New Deal for mobile will result in ubiquitous 4G coverage across Metropolitan France by the end of 2020, and introduce a targeted coverage scheme designed to improve coverage significantly in specific areas where local authorities and the Government have identified a need for regional digital development: each operator will be required to ensure coverage of 5,000 new locations as part of this scheme.
