From Tuesday, March 5 all subscribers to French mobile services SFR, Bouygues and Free will be welcomed in the Principality on the Monaco network. This deployment, supported by the Prince’s Government, in coordination with French operators and the national operator Monaco Telecom, aims to unify the quality of the mobile network in the Principality.

Subscribers will be able to roam when they come to Monaco using the Monaco Telecom network, which they will see registered at the top of their phone screen, instead of the name of their French operator.

The objective is to allow users to benefit from connection to internet, the local operator’s telephone network.

In practice, in order to be able to use the Monaco Telecom network, French mobile service subscribers will have to check that cellular data and “Data abroad” roaming are activated, Monaco Telecom says.

The code +33 must be dialled for any call to France.

A few days before deployment, Christophe Pierre, Director of Platforms and Digital Resources within the Interministerial Delegation in charge of Digital Transition, said: “Faced with the permanent growth of mobile users and having to deal with a high population density and limited frequency resources, the Prince’s Government wanted to initiate this transition towards a unified mobile network.”
