SFR claimed the launch of France’s first commercial 5G mobile network services in Nice in November 2020, following the completion of the country’s 3500MHz 5G spectrum allocation process. By the end of that month the coverage was expanded to 120 locations in Bordeaux, Marseille, Montpellier, Nantes, Nice and Paris-Ile-de-France.
