France’s telecoms regulator Arcep has launched a public consultation on the use and development of wireless in the local loop (WiLL) in the 3.5GHz band. Open until 23 June 2011, the consultation is designed to explore the role WiLL could play in the local market for fixed and roaming broadband internet access, as well as reviewing the status of the industry, developments in technology and other spectrum requirements. Arcep published its status report on domestic WiLL rollouts in the aforementioned frequency band at end-2010.
