French mobile operator SFR has announced plans to launch commercial LTE services in Lyon on 28 November, ahead of the crucial holiday shopping season and before the accepted commercial LTE launch for all operators in January 2013. The Vivendi subsidiary achieved 98.6 percent of the population covered by HSPA this summer and expects to have 60 percent Dual Carrier (DC-HSDPA+) coverage by the end of 2012, doubling peak speeds to 42 Mbps. The Lyon LTE service will be accompanied by a range of terminals and the new "Formules Carrees" offers and tariffs it just introduced.
