Montpellier, Bordeaux, Nantes, Marseille and the greater Paris area will be the next cities to be covered by SFR in 5G, the operator said. It also revealed its 5G plans. This is in line with those that leaked a few days ago:

So far, only Orange and Bouygues Telecom had communicated their consumer offers. The first will launch soon and the second will activate its 5G network on December 1st. There is talk of a start in “the coming weeks”.

Grégory Rabuel also mentioned the case of SFR’s 5G coverage in Paris. “We are ready to serve 90% of the population in Paris in the coming days, if we should ever reach an agreement with the city,” said the chairman. Mayor Anne Hidalgo “decided to hold a discussion forum with the Parisians in order to delay this departure a little. We are in talks as with many other churches, ”he added.
