Free Mobile set to increase 2100 MHz spectrum holding under 'New Deal' redistribution

Thursday 19 August 2021 | 14:11 CET | News
French operator Free Mobile is going to benefit from a larger block of 2100 MHz spectrum starting from 21 August, with its holding in this frequency band increasing to 14.8 MHz duplex from 5 MHz duplex previously. This is in line with the reallocation of spectrum resources agreed with telecom authority Arcep in 2018, as part of so-called 'New Deal' mobile coverage programme.
