AuRA: how to roll out 4G across the region?

AuRA: how to roll out 4G across the region?

Many territories still do not have access to a fast and efficient Internet connection in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and elsewhere in France. This is why the State and Arcep have developed the New Mobile Deal in order to address this problem by standardising mobile Internet coverage at national level.


Although the State is the initiator of this project, it is the mobile operators who manage it directly. Free, Bouygues Telecom, Orange and SFR are therefore responsible for the investment in the design of these new networks. Even though there are no subsidies, the State is in fact piloting this bold project and sharing its objectives with the operators, who must align themselves with it.


According to the State services, in collaboration with the local authorities, 509 areas are deemed to be priorities in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. 64 new additional sites are to be equipped in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region following the publication of the latest order on 9 April.


However, due to the region's many mountainous areas, installing the equipment necessary for the network to spread properly is much more difficult. This explains why the region has so many areas without access to a good Internet connection and why it needs special attention.

However, the health crisis makes this project much more difficult to implement and there are many delays.

Fiber: the State releases an additional 570 million euros

In order to make fiber available by 2025 for 100% of premises in France, the government has decided to release an additional 570 million euros.


This sum will notably concern the Réseaux d'Initiatives Publiques (RIP) to offer fiber everywhere in rural areas. An initial budget of 420 million euros will be allocated to 12 RIPs, including those in Auvergne and Brittany. Auvergne alone will be entitled to 123 million euros to create 267,000 fiber outlets, i.e. additional individual connections.

The remaining 150 million euros will arrive a little later. The State has indicated that the details of this sum will be shared during the summer.


Mobile coverage is also being discussed. While three quarters of France is currently covered in 4G by Orange, SFR, Bouygues Telecom and Free Mobile, 2,000 additional masts will be installed over the next two years. They will join the 580 existing pylons. In total, the operators will install some 10,000 masts.

96% of the territory covered in 4G

Arcep takes stock of the 4G mobile coverage of the metropolis. The Telecom gendarme estimates that the territory is today 96% covered by at least one operator and 76% covered by all operators.


Within the framework of the New Mobile Deal, "2,066 zones have been identified by the local authorities. ...] To date, 462 new sites are providing voice and SMS services with "good coverage" thanks to 3G and very high-speed mobile broadband (4G) in areas that have been identified and prioritized by the local authorities," the regulatory authority points out.


Operators' commitments/obligations are also verified by Arcep. Identified by an order dated July 4, 2018, 445 sites were to be implemented by October 9, 2020. Assessment: "403 of the 445 sites have been commissioned, i.e. nearly 91%. ...] The causes of the delays in bringing the other sites into service are currently being analyzed" by the regulator's services.


"Arcep welcomes the good progress of the Mobile New Deal, thanks to the mobilization of operators, local players and public authorities. The Authority will ensure that the operators fully respect all the commitments they have made," concludes Sébastien Soriano.
