Cellcos to run tests into 800MHz LTE and DTT interference

2 Apr 2013

According to news agency AFP, France’s largest mobile operators – Orange, SFR and Bouygues – will run tests in April to determine Long Term Evolution (LTE) and DTT interference in the 800MHz frequency band. The move follows the completion of an initial batch of tests in 2011. The cellcos are expected to start offering LTE over the 800MHz band in the second half of 2013, pending approval from national frequencies agency ANFR.
