Bouygues Telecom announced that it has launched the first commercial site on 700 Mhz in Paris after it obtained ANFR permissions from the National Frequency Agency.  This follows the issuance of spectrum in the 700MHz band last year that also saw two other operators, Numericable-SFR and Free Mobile each taking a slice in the spectrum band. Bouygues Telecom aquired a block of 5 MHz spectrum in the 700MHz ban for €466 million.

This additional block will be added to the spectrum used by Bouygues Telecom for 4G comprising 800 MHz and 2600 MHz frequencies acquired in 2012 as well as the 1800 MHz frequencies that Bouygues Telecom was the first to use on a massive scale, to offer its customers extensive 4G coverage

Bouygues Telecom said that it is continuing its commitment to support the development of the uses of internet and mobility to maintain its leadership in 4G. Bouygues Telecom now covers 75% of the population in 4G and will cover 82% of the population by the end of 2016.
