French regulator confirms more stringent obligations on operators for improved mobile coverage maps

Tuesday 14 April 2020 | 12:47 CET | News
Telecom authority Arcep has made a number of announcements on its ongoing efforts to improve the accuracy of information on network coverage across France. Following the consultation published in January, the regulator has confirmed that operators will be required to increase the reliability of the online mapping tool available to consumers since 2017. This website (https://monreseaumobile.fr) will soon display coverage maps with a reliability threshold of at least 98 percent in most cases, compared with 95 percent currently.
