Ranking of French cities by number of 5G antennas 2020

5G is finally arriving in France, with deployment in the country scheduled for November 18, 2020. 5G succeeds the previous generation of 4G, and will offer much higher speed than previously available, as well as very short latency times and an increased number of simultaneous connections possible per area covered. Marseille was the best-equipped French city with a total of 95 5G antennas, followed by Paris and Montpellier with 58 and 51 antennas, respectively.

Operators and territory coverage

As of November 2020, Orange had set up the highest number of 5G antennas under test in France. While almost the entirety of the French population was covered by mobile broadband (4G) by all four main operators, Orange was also at the top of the list in terms of territory coverage.

5G in the era of the smart city

The implementation of 5g on the French territory is one of the cornerstones of the development of the smart city and the digital transition it promotes. Indeed, open data was the most often carried out smart city project by French cities. Here again, Marseille stands out from other cities by being the most advanced French city in terms of smart city projects.
