On January 17, 2012 ARCEP (Autorité de régulation des communications électroniques et des postes) issued the licences to the three winners to use spectrum in the 800 MHz band to establish and operate a mobile network.
The last December 22, ARCEP issued Decision No. 2011-1510 where three companies (Bouygues Telecom, Orange France and SFR) were selected as the winning candidates in the spectrum allocation procedure for 800 MHz-band frequencies. These frequencies are to be used in the deployment of new-generation (4G) mobile networks which will provide ultra high-speed access to the mobile internet.
Decisions on the Licences can be consulted (in French) through the following links:
This concludes the 4G licensing procedures that ARCEP carried out last year, first for the 2.6 GHz band and then for the 800 MHz band.
