Unveiled at the end of 2017, the project has been entirely funded by private investment, with Orange coordinating the deployment in partnership with Bouygues Telecom, SFR and Free Mobile. In the coming months, except to the Lyon metro, the four operators will also bring LTE to the city’s funicular railway system.
