Arcep pulls three overseas operators' frequencies

Friday 17 July 2015 | 14:58 CET | News
French telecom regulator Arcep has withdrawn the frequencies issued in 2008 to Guadeloupe Telephone Mobile, Martinique Telephone Mobile and Guyane Telephone Mobile, due to their failure to comply with licensing obligations and to pay their licence fees. The companies did not perform any rollouts and were heavily in arrears in the payment of the licensing fees. An appeal to France's highest administrative court, the Conseil d'Etat, was rejected on 8 July.
