Orange France has launched its first commercial 4G-LTE network in Paris, with plans to extend the service to 15 cities by early April, including Bordeaux, La Rochelle, Chartres, Orleans, Dunkirk, Nancy, Metz, Clermont-Ferrand, Grenoble and Annecy. The market-leading operator has been previously testing 4G in Marseille, Lyon, Nantes and Lille, where the network has been working for few months.
Initially, the LTE network covers the Paris Opera area while the full, city-wide coverage is expected by the end of the year.
When it comes to compatible devices, Orange is offering five smartphones — the Samsung, Samsung Galaxy Note II, Nokia Lumia 920, SV and Sony Xperia Z (coming soon) — as well as a tablet (Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1) and modem (Huawei E5776).
Rival SFR was the first French operator to commercially launch LTE with its network going live in Lyon and Montpellier before Christmas.
