Orange starts 5G tests in Paris

Mobile network operator (MNO) Orange is to begin tests of 5G mobile network technology in Paris in the coming months as commercial roll-out of the next generation of mobile networks nears.

The operator has already been testing elements of 5G in the cities of Douai, Lille and Marseille, as well as in Romania, and hopes to use its new testbeds to improve network quality and develop new services.

The three new locations are at its flagship store at Opéra in central Paris, where it will build a demonstration network to show off to consumers, in the suburb of Châtillon and at the Linas-Montlhéry race track, to the south of the French capital.
