Containment: 5G and fiber optics are still used in France

Will the containment impact the deployment of 5G? Not at all, says Fabienne Dulac, President of Orange France. The operators can continue to install their antennas.

“The provision of networks is not being questioned during this time of detention,” Fabienne Dulac told AFP. “In particular, thanks to the opening of all administrative services, it has been asked that we can continue to benefit from the permissions we need for all of our deployments so that we are not overall slowed down,” she added. .

Orange, which has won the most 5G frequency blocks, will already have ready-to-use commercial offers when the network is activated at the end of the year. The plans go up to € 94.99 / month. For this price, customers have unlimited calls, SMS, MMS and internet.

No problem with fiber optic provision

The President of Orange France also mentioned the case of the use of fiberglass. She recalls that in spring the activity was not stopped during the first delivery. At that point there was an “extremely strict” protocol. This made a million interventions possible. “With the second restriction, we will install the same equipment,” says Fabienne Dulac. She says she expects “a lot of activity” during this time.
