Mobile coverage card

St-Barth.

Mobile network cover

In order to respond in a targeted way and adapted to all the expectations of citizens and territories in terms of mobile connectivity, a targeted coverage device has been set up in 2018. It aims to improve in a localized and significant manner the coverage of zones in which a need for digital planning has been identified by communities and the government. Thus, each operator will be required to cover 5,000 new areas thanks to new sites, some of which will be shared. The card presents the points of interest as well as the areas identified by the public authorities. When you fly over an interest point (Po) on the card, you can consult additional information. Depending on the zones, operators will have to build one or more sites to provide votes, SMS and 4G coverage on the entire area. These sites will appear as soon as they are put into service.

Priority road axes

As of December 31, 2020, Bouygues Telecom, Orange and SFR have the obligation to make available votes, SMS (2G/3G) and very high speed (4G) services on all priority road axes. Priority road axes are defined in the authorizations to use the frequencies issued to metropolitan mobile network operators as “highways, the main roads connecting, within each department, the department of department (prefecture) to chiefs -tiles of boroughs (sub-prefectures) and sections of roads on which an annual average circulating at least five thousand vehicles per day circulate, as they exist on January 1, 2018. If several road axes connect a department of department (prefecture) to a chief town of district (sub-prefecture), the holder is required to cover at least one. »»

Important information

ARCEP publishes data for the first time from third -party players. This approach aims to be experimental and open upon returning from the stakeholders. Published datasets may have to evolve.

The places of measurement and the terms retained by the third -party data suppliers reflect the choices of these organizations. The results must therefore be interpreted differently from those of the arcep measurement campaigns, which are carried out with the aim of comparing mobile operators on a national scale, on the basis of various tests and a representative sample (in looking in particular a balance between rural areas and dense areas).

Crowdsourcing measures

Important information

ARCEP publishes for the first time the results of measures from crowdsourcing. This approach aims to be experimental and open upon returning from the stakeholders. Published datasets may have to evolve.

The results of the measurements carried out via crowdsourcing applications can vary strongly according to many parameters: the situation of the user (interior or exterior of buildings, its movement speed, the terminal used, the number of simultaneous users. Protocols retained by applications also have an impact on the results obtained. The results must therefore be interpreted differently from those of the arcep measurement campaigns, which are carried out with the aim of comparing mobile operators on a national scale, on the basis of various tests and a representative sample (looking for in particular a balance between rural areas and dense areas).

For more information on crowdsourcing applications and the interpretation of the results of measures that come from it, see the educational document.

Information supplements

Voice/SMS cards have been designed to be compatible with all terminals and therefore only include 2G. If you have a terminal compatible with 3G and/or 4G, the service area may be more extensive.

More generally, the information on the coverage is issued for information only and does not have contractual value. The coverage areas are simulated in a computer way, it is therefore possible that certain inaccuracies exist.

In addition, the coverage can vary over time, due to many factors: the season, weather conditions, the number of users, the appearance of an obstacle …

The cover inside the buildings can be altered depending on the building materials used, the presence of windows and the location of the phone inside the building. The card thus reflects an average estimate of the coverage inside the buildings, which may, in some cases, be less good.

In case of poor coverage inside buildings, operators offer solutions presented here

Finally, the availability of the service can be strongly affected by the type and sensitivity of the terminal used. In this regard, the cards are simulated for an average terminal sensitivity.

The reliability of the cards is regularly checked by the arcep during field measurement campaigns. However, differences, linked to the own parameters retained by each of the operators in their models, may exist, and thus limit the comparability of the cards.

Mobile coverage card

With the map of mobile networks, enter your address and consult what is the level of coverage of your home. Is there at least one operator who offers 4G or 5G at your address ?

4G and 5G networks

As of December 31, 2022, mobile coverage of operators in mainland France was greater than 99% of the population in 4G at Orange, Bouygues Telecom, SFR and Free Mobile. The surface coverage – and therefore of the territory – was lower with respectively 95% for the 4G of SFR, 94% for Bouygues Telecom, 94% for Orange and finally 92% for free.

Operators continue to densify their mobile telephony networks with new 4G frequencies to increase flow rates (4G+ LTE-A). But the big novelty, since the end of 2020, is the launch of 5G. Orange, SFR, Bouygues Telecom and Free indeed deploy their new 5th generation networks with the promise of even faster speed. 5G coverage will be progressive in the territory and should be complete by 2030.

As of July 1, 2023, it was Free who had deployed the largest number of 5G sites, ahead of Bouygues Telecom, SFR and Orange. Nevertheless, in the frequency band dedicated to 5G (3.5 GHz), it was Orange that activated the largest number of sites in front of SFR, Bouygues Telecom and Free.

Network operators

Only operators with a mobile phone license purchased from the State (ARCEP) can deploy and explain a mobile network. On the other hand, you are not obliged to have a mobile package with this operator to use its network. You can choose a 4G or 5G subscription from a virtual operator “MVNO” which rents its network:

  • Mobile packages on the Orange network
  • Mobile packages on the SFR network
  • Mobile packages on the Bouygues Telecom network
  • Mobile packages on the Free Network

What information is published on the Map of Mobile Networks ?

With the Map of Ariase Mobile Networks, you can find out with one click if the telephone network of at least one operator is available at your address. The card details the best network available (4G, 3G or 2G) as well as the number of operators offering mobile internet in 4G. The list of operator networks available at your address (Orange, SFR, Bouygues Telecom and Free) is provided as well as a “see packages” link to compare mobile prices.

Where the data from the mobile coverage card comes ?

The mobile cover information is communicated to us by the ARCEP (telecoms regulatory authority) from simulated data provided by the 4 French mobile network operators, namely Orange, Free Mobile, SFR and Bouygues Telecom. These data are quarterly updated.

Why does 5G do not appear on the map ?

The 5G mobile networks have been being deployed since the start of 2021. Ariase’s mobile coverage card will be updated with 5G data as soon as it is published by ARCEP. In the meantime, go to our map of cities covered in 5g.

My address is not on the map.

If your accommodation or address is not on the map, this means that we do not yet have its geographical contact details. We regularly update the list of addresses by relying on the basis of national opening addresses (bano).

My address is not covered in 4G but the card indicates the opposite.

The data displayed is simulated coverage data. They are therefore calculated by the operators themselves on the basis of topographic elements and theoretical models of propagation of mobile waves. It is therefore possible that the theoretical coverage of your address is different from the actual coverage provided by your smartphone.
