SFR announced that its 5G network will become available to 120 municipalities by the end of the year, including many locations within the country's largest metropolitan areas. This follows the arrival of 5G in Nice on 20 November, coinciding with the introduction of a new range of mobile voice and data plans. The company said that local authorities in Bordeaux, Nantes and Paris had asked network operators to hold back on the activation of cell sites, delaying the launch of 5G commercial services.
