Tens of Thousands of 5G and 4G Towers Are Operating or Have Been Authorized in France

By B.N. Frank

Citizens, environmentalists, and legislators in France have taken action against 5G deployment on land (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) and in space.  Opposition has even received media coverage.  Nevertheless, deployment and activation of 5G (see 1, 2, 3) as well as harmful 4G has continued.

France ends July with 35,311 authorized 5G sites nationwide

By Juan Pedro Tomás

The number of authorized 5G sites across France during July increased by 2.2% compared to the previous month

France had a total of 35,311 authorized 5G sites as of August 1, of which 26,093 were declared technically operational by the local mobile operators, according to the latest monthly report published by France’s spectrum agency ANFR.

ANFR said that the number of authorized 5G sites during July increased by 2.2% compared to the previous month.

The agency said that almost all of the 5G sites have been authorized on existing cellular sites, already used by 2G, 3G or 4G technologies.

In France, mobile carriers are currently providing 5G services through frequencies in the 700 MHz, 2.1 GHz and 3.5 GHz bands.

ANFR said that a total of 19,950 sites are authorized in the 700 MHz band (Free Mobile), of which 15,090 are already technically operational. Also, ANFR said that 15,018 sites are authorized in the 2.1 GHz band (Bouygues Telecom, Orange and SFR), but 9,134 are technically operational.

Meanwhile, 20.033 sites are authorized in the 3.5 GHz band (Bouygues Telecom, Free Mobile, Orange and SFR), of which 12,877 are declared technically operational.

Free Mobile had the highest number of operational 5G sites as of the end of July, with 15,100, followed by Bouygues Telecom (7,966), SFR (6,822) and Orange (4,438).

Some of the authorized 5G sites are shared by the mobile operators, the agency said.

In addition, 57,984 4G sites were authorized in mainland France as of August 1, of which 53,104 are in service.

Free Mobile, a subsidiary of Illiad, previosuly said its 5G footprint currently covers 77% of the country’s population, up from 52% in May 2021.

Free Mobile said that its 5G network currently reaches 9,100 municipalities across France.

For its 5G network, Free Mobile uses frequencies in the 700 MHz band as well as frequencies in the 3.5 GHz band which Free acquired in a French spectrum auction in 2020.

Meanwhile, Bouygues Telecom initially launched 5G in 20 cities across France in December 2020. The telco currently provides 5G coverage in more than 10,000 towns and municipalities across France. Some of the large cities where the telco provides 5G include Paris, Marseille, Lyon, Toulouse, Nice, Nantes, Montpellier, Strasbourg, Bordeaux and Lille.

French telco Orange has already deployed 5G in nearly 900 municipalities across the country at the end of 2021, providing coverage to 38% of population in metropolitan areas. Some of the initial cities covered by Orange’s 5G network include Marseille, Nice, Le Mans and Angers. Orange initially launched commercial 5G services in 15 municipalities at the beginning of December 2020.

Meanwhile, SFR initially launched its 5G commercial network in Nice in November 2020. According to the company’s website, SFR currently provides 5G services in 4,400 municipalities across France.


Opposition to 5G is worldwide which has limited, slowed, and/or stopped deployment in some locations (see 1, 2).  Since 2017 doctors and scientists have asked for moratoriums on Earth and in space (see 1, 2) and the majority of scientists oppose deployment.  Since 2018 there have been reports of people and animals experiencing symptoms and illnesses after it was activated (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).  Some researchers have suggested that 5G activation may be contributing to COVID-19 infections as well as hundreds of thousands if not millions of bird deaths.  Of course, there are health and environmental risks associated with 4G and other sources of wireless Wi-Fi radiation (see 1, 2) and electromagnetic fields (aka “Electrosmog”) as well.  Regardless 5G doesn’t seem to be the end goal anyway – it’s 6GC’est la vie.
