24 November 2016
On 22 November 2016, Arcep adopted the 10 decisions on frequency license in the 800 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 2.1 GHz and 2.6 GHz bands awarded to the operators it had selected on 11 October of this year.
These decisions bring to a close the frequency allocation procedures in France's overseas departments and territories that were launched by the Government order of 29 January 2016, acting on a proposal from Arcep.
Four operators in each territory are thus authorised to launch 4G services:
- in Guadeloupe, Guyana and Martinique: Digicel, Free Mobile, Orange Caraïbe and Outremer Telecom;
- in Saint Barthélemy and Saint Martin: Dauphin Telecom, Digicel, Free Mobile and Orange Caraïbe;
- in Réunion: Orange, SRR, Telco OI and ZEOP Mobile;
- and in Mayotte: BJT Partners, Orange, SRR and Telco OI.
These operators are now free to launch 4G services, effective immediately in Antilles and Guyana and on 1 December in the Indian Ocean.
