Bouygues Telecom, Free Mobile, Orange and SFR have filed their applications with ARCEP for 700 MHz band spectrum assignments
Paris, 29 September 2015
Four companies filed an application by the deadline set for 12 pm on 29 September
2015, with a view to being assigned 700 MHz band frequencies. They are:
- Bouygues Telecom;
- Free Mobile;
- and SFR.
ARCEP will now examine their applications to ensure that they satisfy the procedure's
admissibility and qualification criteria. Once this examination process is complete,
around one month from now, ARCEP will publish a list of the candidates that
are eligible to participate in the frequency auctions.
These auctions will be held in November, so that licences can be issued before
the end of the year.
