Free Mobile secures Arcep's approval to extend national roaming deal with Orange to end-2022

Monday 26 October 2020 | 10:01 CET | News
French telecom authority Arcep has given its green light to a contract that enables Free Mobile to extend its national roaming agreement with Orange to 31 December 2022. The two mobile operators sought Arcep's approval earlier this year prompting an in-depth examination into the deal by the regulator. Following a call for comments in early April, Bouygues Telecom, SFR, and the Alternative Telecom association sent their feedback on the contract extension, which has now been made public alongside this latest decision.
