New Deal programme : to develop and increase the density of mobile telephony infrastructure across France

In January 2018, ARCEP and the Government announced mobile network operator commitments to accelerate the rollout of mobile coverage throughout France’s regions. As part of the frequency awards, mobile network operators must provide superfast mobile (4G) services on their mobile networks in mainland France with deadlines for the deployment of new sites.
