Thursday 13 December 2018 | 10:39 CET | News
Bouygues subsidiary Axione has strengthened its ties with investment firm Mirova to create CityFast, a new company that will bring FTTH connectivity to 3.4 million French premises in very densely populated areas. The venture has secured a tender from Bouygues Telecom, creating a new business model under which the operator transfers its existing FTTH infrastructure to CityFast and gains rights to use CityFast's network for 30 years.
