In telecommunications, 5 G is the fifth generation technology standard for cellular networks, which cellular phone companies began deploying worldwide in 2019

It is visible on the map below which shows the coverage of the 3G network by the operator Orange. We see that some areas, especially near the Alps and the Pyrenees, but also in Corsica, do not have access.

Still some progress to be made on 4G

With regard to 4G, INSEE admits that there is still progress to be made, but network coverage has improved a lot. Thus, between "July 2017 and January 2019, the share of surface area covered by at least two operators increased by 17 points across the country". In the first quarter of 2019, 87% of the territory had access to 4G, adds INSEE.

According to data from monréseaumobile.fr, there are still many areas without 4G. By using the same operator, Orange, we notice more holes in the coverage of the mobile network than for 3G.

Optical fiber still sparse

For fixed network coverage, like optical fiber, we are far from having a unified territory. According to the map of the Regulatory Authority for Electronic Communications and Posts (Arcep), major disparities remain.

"As of June 30, 2020, the number of end-to-end fiber optic access amounts to 8.3 million lines. This technology now represents nearly two-thirds of the total number of very high-speed accesses, "notes the regulatory authority, however, which stresses that the confinement from March to May has undoubtedly had an impact on the increase" in the number of accesses at high and very high speed and on the conversion of subscribers to "fiber optic technology."

In early September, the government said it planned to increase the supply of fiber optics across the country. It therefore plans to increase by 240 million euros the funding already provided for the equipment of the territory. It now displays the objective of a fully fiberized France by 2025, and optical fiber will be instituted as a "universal service", just like water or electricity.
