French state-owned railway company SNCF will collaborate with SFR on 5G testing in a new pilot that the operator launched in the city of Nantes on 22 January. The two partners aim to demonstrate how 5G services can benefit the railway sector. SFR received the green light to expand its 5G testing programme to Nantes in mid-2018. It has also been authorised to carry out 5G pilots in several other French locations, including Toulouse and Lyon.
