The cost of electricity has nearly doubled in recent months, affecting both individuals and businesses. The Iliad, the largest French telephone service, has found a way to save costs and pollution.

The Iliad shuts down the network to save money
The unrealistic costs of electricity have not only affected individuals or families, but also large businesses, especially mobile phone networks.
To remedy the problem, many operators decided to raise prices for all their customers, however, this led to many negative results given that users of the service then decided to change their operator, in search of a more suitable operator.
The Iliad has found a solution that can make everyone, the customers, the company, and the planet happy. To reduce costs while leaving tariffs as they are, Iliad decided to experiment with the nightly shutdown of the network across France.
Free Mobile, a subsidiary of Iliad Group, decided to close its networks from 00.00 to 06.00, leaving more than 46 thousand inactive cells. In fact, it was noted in those times that low traffic does not justify a high speed range, and here the idea of putting 3G and 4G cells in the 2100MHz band and 5G cells in the band on standby was started. 3.5GHz, 3G, and 4G cells in the 700MHz band have also been put on standby since mid-September.
However, the cells in question are programmed to reactivate if high traffic is detected, however, in the meantime, this measure will save the company and people a lot of money, as well as avoid a lot of energy waste, and protect the planet a little more.
