The number of 5G cell sites emitting a signal across mainland France increased by 952 in May to reach 14,284 as of 01 June, according to spectrum agency ANFR. This total includes antennas in or ready for commercial service, and represents 57 percent of the overall footprint on which operators are already authorised to roll out 5G services (25,105 sites). With the exception of two cell sites, the agency has so far authorised 5G installations on existing mobile towers used for 2G/3G/4G services.
