French regulator Arcep has published a document highlighting its priorities to prepare the country for the launch of 5G services, as part of a roadmap agreed with the government. The work programme is sponsored by secretaries of state Mounir Mahjoubi and Delphine Geny-Stephann, who are in charge of digital affairs and economic affairs, respectively. Among the main targets set in the roadmap, France will allocate new 5G frequencies and ensure a commercial rollout in at least one major city by 2020, while the main transport routes will be covered by 2025.
