Free Mobile unlocks up to 15MHz on the 2100MHz frequency in 4G. If this development seems local at the moment, it promises more speed to subscribers.
The 4G Free Mobile network continues to advance. While it only had 5MHz in 3G on the 2100MHz band, troublemakers have kept a 15MHz band since last September, enough to allow it to use that frequency in 4G. Of this gain spectrum, made possible by the “new mobile phone deal” signed with the state in 2018 and the reallocation of frequencies, Free has benefited from this band for several months with activation on April 1 for 3,490 sites in that 4G band according to ANFR figures. This deployment thus allows subscribers to gain speed thanks to frequency pooling.
Soon the Xavier Niel operator started using the 15 MHz allocated on the 2100 MHz band as opposed to the 10 MHz so far in 4G. After the first such development identified last February in Melun in Seine-et-Marne, it is the turn of 4G support in Bordeaux to take advantage of the switch to 15MHz on the frequency of 2100MHz. According to the results of VacheGTI, a member of our partner RNC Mobile, this optimization brings more speed, “Includes 3G 2100MHz cut-off to avoid interference between sites..
