A 4G coverage map to find the best operator
From now on, the card differentiates coverage for calls and SMS and coverage for mobile internet. Convenient to make your choice according to the uses: there is not much interest to check the card for the calls and the SMS if you use only WhatsApp. It should be noted that the data, provided by the operators, date from January 1, 2018 for Orange, SFR and Bouygues Telecom but from July 1, 2017 for Free Mobile.
On the other hand, the presentation of the mobile internet card is for the moment only binary: it indicates whether the network is present or not but not its quality. Arcep plans to improve this point in the future. For calls and SMS, the card shows four different levels: Very good coverage, Good coverage, Limited coverage and No coverage. The network coverage map is available on monreseaumobile.fr. Regarding mobile internet, Free's network is still lagging behind. Orange covers 96% of the population in 4G, Bouygues and SFR 95% and Free 82%. Orange is also the leader in terms of coverage with a 77% rate, compared to 75% for SFR, 74% for Bouygues Telecom and only 48% for Free. As a reminder, Free will no longer be able to use Orange roaming from 2020.
