5G is coming very soon. SFR has announced that its branches will be open in no less than 120 municipalities in the next month. Without promising a precise date, we nevertheless know the names of the agglomerations concerned: Bordeaux, Marseille-Aix, Montpellier, Nantes, Nice and Paris. Note that some cities have asked to delay the deployment of the network in order to take the temperature of their inhabitants.
Paris, in particular, is organizing a citizens’ conference with a view to drawing up a ” mobile phone charter ” aiming to “reduce exposure to electromagnetic waves“. The activation of 5G is indeed the subject of much debate in the political and public sphere. As for the level of coverage, no data has been specified by SFR, but the map of the first antennas authorized by the ANFR provides a global view. In the meantime, you can find the full list below:
