On October 8, 2012, ARCEP launched a public consultation on PMR (Professional Mobile Radio) networks and their future spectrum needs [Press release in English]. ARCEP observes that today PMR networks are mostly used for narrowband voice and data transmissions and wonders how these networks will evolve and in particular whether they could develop towards the supply of broadband and very-fast broadband services. Stakeholders can submit their comments of the desired developments of PMR networks by November 30, 2012.
