Orange France prepared to share LTE network - CEO

Tuesday 8 May 2012 | 09:06 CET | News
France Telecom-Orange CEO Stephane Richard told L'Express that his company was prepared to share LTE networks with the country's other 4G spectrum winners, SFR and/or Bouygues Telecom, but both seem reticent so far. The three operators will start pilot services in Marseilles and Lyon this summer ahead of commercial service launches at the start of next year. Richard cited Orange's existing network sharing deals with competitors in Poland and the UK, and soon Romania and Spain. In the same interview, Richard said he has just returned from the US, where he met Apple CEO Tim Cook. He confirmed that Orange would have the iPhone 5, but could not reveal the new phone's launch date in France.
