Arcep confirms new fibre obligations on Orange in B2B market

Tuesday 11 July 2017 | 11:02 CET | News
French telecom authority Arcep outlined its action plan on fibre regulation, ahead of the publication of the full draft decisions on the latest round of market analyses concerning the three fixed broadband wholesale markets (markets 3a, 3b and 4). This follows the consultation issued in February. The main action points are that Arcep will impose several new obligations on Orange specific to the B2B sector and will strengthen the current asymmetric regulatory framework to facilitate fibre roll-outs by all operators accessing Orange's civil engineering infrastructure.
