Orange strengthens presence in France via public initiative networks

Share this on social media:

Orange is to offer its services in France as an internet service provider (ISP) on all public initiative networks deployed in the market, regardless of the infrastructure operator deploying the network.

The move will expand the operator’s fibre offering, which is currently available for 12 million homes and business premises. Residents and professionals in areas served by the networks will eventually benefit from Fiber Orange offers. These are already available for more than 500,000 homes and business premises located in the public initiative network zone. By the end of 2019, they are expected to reach around 3 million eligible catches in these same areas.

Fabienne Dulac, deputy chief executive officer at Orange France commented: ‘With this decision, we demonstrate our commitment to the deployment of fibre and our desire to support our customers and public stakeholders. It illustrates Orange's ongoing commitment to fight digital exclusion.’
