According to leaked documents from the Ministry of Interior the French government is considering two new pieces of legislation: a ban on free and shared Wi-Fi connections during a state of emergency, and measures to block Tor being used inside France.

Right, because the answer to people who want to attack our freedom is to restrict our freedom.

Presumably it's easier to track cellular user than wifi user. Even if you can use mobile network anonymously (as in prepaid in most countries), the number can still be tracked.
