Île-de-France Mobilités, RATP en de vier Franse telecomoperatoren (Orange, SFR, Bouygues Telecom in Free) hebben announced that from this week 4G on all
Parisian metro and RER lines is available.
The newspaper Le Figaro calls it a small underground revolution, because cities such as Rennes or Toulouse had had it for much longer.
A 4G network was supposed to come seven years ago, but there were many factors that delayed construction, such as metro stations that are more than a century old and the obligation to perform night work.
300 kilometers of cables, 3000 antennas and 280 technical rooms have been installed. Part of which may need to be replaced by G5 equipment.
