For the area's businesses:
The Calvados Council is striving to improve mobile telephony.
To optimise the area's mobile telephony coverage, the Council has signed a partnership agreement with three of the market's operators: Bouygues Telecom, France Telecom and Cégétel. The aim is not only to facilitate their administrative obligations, but also to mutualise the infrastructures required to "transmit and receive" everywhere throughout Calvados.

Broadband access:

- via hertzian technology, a competitor to the aforementioned technology, access should be of equivalent quality but at a lower cost.
100% of Calvados' territory benefits from broadband access:
- either via ADSL for 97.8% of telephone lines
- or via satellite Internet for other, ineligible lines, thanks to the Nornet system.
