The operator switched on its Non-Standalone (NSA) 5G network in selected parts of Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Seville and Malaga, subsequently expanding it to Zaragoza, Pamplona and Logrono.

The service is now available in other major cities such as Bilbao, La Coruna, Leon and Santander as well as coastal areas from Cadiz to Ibiza, Ceuta and Melilla, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Mojacar and Denia. It can also be accessed in inland cities such as Caceres, Salamanca, Cordoba and Valladolid.

Orange Spain’s 5G service is initially available in central areas of the affected cities via the operator’s 100 MHz of spectrum in the 3.6-3.8 GHz band, with Orange expected to bid for 5G-compatible frequencies in the 700 MHz band when the government holds its spectrum auction later this year.

Orange ends discussions on a mobile network sharing agreement with Free

Following the 5G auction that took place last October, Orange and Free have held discussions with a view to reaching a mobile network sharing agreement in France.

Given a divergence in deployment strategy, Orange has decided to end these discussions. For Orange, the quality of its networks is a priority. Its mobile network in France was ranked best mobile network in France for the 10th consecutive year by ARCEP. The Group is also fully committed to the deployment of fibre in France, providing two-thirds of the 24 million connectable homes that have already been built.
