Orange France, SFR roll out 3G

February 29, 2008

France's telecoms regulator Arcep has authorised domestic mobile operators Orange France and Societe Francaise de Radiotelephonie (SFR) to roll out 3G mobile technology using 900MHz band frequencies previously reserved for GSM services.

The move will enable the two companies to up their national 3G coverage to include virtually the entire French population. France's third, and smallest, cellco by subscribers, Bouygues Telecom, did not submit a request to re-use the 900MHz spectrum.
