30 Sep 2022

The National Frequency Agency (Agence Nationale des Frequences, ANFR) has announced that the 700MHz frequency band will be freed up for mobile services by the end of October. Main national network broadcaster TDF began the process of releasing the spectrum earlier this month and the process is expected to conclude on 26 October, weather permitting. On 1 January 2023 state-owned national PTO Office des Postes et Telecommunications de Nouvelle-Caledonie (OPT-NC) will be assigned 700MHz spectrum and will use the frequencies for the continued rollout of 4G LTE and LTE-A services.
