Monaco Telecom has been ranked as the world’s best mobile telephony operator worldwide. The 4GMARK measuring tool judges the quality of connections using smartphones in terms of performance and reliability.
Usability is measured in terms of uploading and sending attachments, navigation and video streaming. This barometer of mobile Internet performance is published each month according to data collected by users themselves.
While Monaco Telecom – which is owned by the French entrepreneur Xavier Niel and the Monaco Government – came first out of 290 operators in the month of January, France’s Orange ranked 23rd, SFR 48th, Bouygues 49th and Free in 112th place.
Martin Peronnet, Monaco Telecom’s General Director, said: “These results reflect the daily commitment and investment of Monaco Telecom to offer the best performance and the best quality of service for our subscribers and visitors to the Principality.”
Mr Peronnet added that given that the topography of the Principality is rather difficult and heavily built-up, it is always a welcome challenge for the company’s workforce to raise the levels of performance.
MEB leaders have travelled to Paris to meet several key partners and prepare for operations scheduled for the end of the year and 2021, with the aim of facilitating Monaco’s recovery.
It’s official: AS Monaco’s new season will be marked by a visit from Stade de Reims on the weekend of 22nd August at the Stade Louis II.
Tiger mosquitos do not pose a coronavirus risk, say authorities, however they do spread other deadly diseases which are on the rise.
The government has further relaxed Covid-related restrictions in the Principality, a move that is being welcomed by restaurants and bars who are keen to boost clientele.
Very hot weather is expected throughout France this week, with three-quarters of the country experiencing temperatures of at least 35 degrees, and a peak of 40 in the south-east. On Tuesday, 39 degrees was reached near Bordeaux and 36 at Toulouse.

During a heatwave, the Monaco government website recommends drinking “at least 1.5 litre of water every day and to avoid drinking alcohol, coffee, tea and fizzy or sugary drinks, as these can cause dehydration.” They also remind residents to call the Emergency Unit at Princess Grace Hospital on 97 98 99 00 in case of assistance during periods of very hot weather.
