The European Investment Bank (EIB) has approved a new EUR 300 million loan to Iliad for the deployment of 4G/5G infrastructure in France. The operator's Free Mobile subsidiary has already reached 97.8 percent LTE coverage of the French population. The loan will be use to extend network roll-out across rural and white-spot areas, in support of the government's New Deal programme, and start the deployment of 5G infrastructure following the recent spectrum award in the 3.4-3.8 GHz band.
