French Guiana (Guyane française), officially called Guiana, is an overseas department and region of France, located on the north Atlantic coast of South America in the Guyanas. It borders Brazil to the east and south, and Suriname to the west, and forms part of the French West Indies (Antilles Françaises).

Each cellular network operating in the French West Indies (French Guiana, Guadeloupe, MartiniqueSaint Martin, and Saint Barths) operate a unified, consistent network across the collectives, and are as such treated as a single entity. Cellular spectrum deployments for the French West Indies can be monitored at the Cartoradio website.

As a region of France, the regulatory body governing communications policy is the Autorité de Régulation des Communications électroniques et des Postes (ARCEP), and the Agence Nationale des Fréquences (ANFR) is charged with regulating the territory's radio frequency spectrum activities such as planning, allocations, and licencing.
