Orange France has announced the launch of commercial services over its Long Term Evolution (LTE) network. Initially, corporate customers in four cities – Lyon, Nantes, Lille and Marseille – will be able to access the new service. The cellco then plans to unveil a range of consumer tariffs and devices compatible with both HSPA+ and LTE in February 2013, ahead of expanding coverage to ten cities in April. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Orange has been running a pilot LTE network for testing purposes in Marseille since June 2012. At an event in Paris this week, the company also revealed that its HSPA+ coverage will reach 60% of the population by the end of 2012.
