French regulator Arcep has issued the first frequency authorisations to develop 5G pilots in the 3.5 GHz band (3400 - 3800 MHz), after inviting applications from interested parties in January. Orange will be allowed to use a portion of spectrum for twelve months, starting from June, in the cities of Lille and Douai. The operator had already announced the timing of these pilots, alongside its plans to test 5G-based fixed access in Romania.
