Coriolis eyes Bouygues business customer base

Tuesday 12 January 2016 | 10:38 CET | News
French business operator Coriolis will enter discussions with Orange and Bouygues to acquire the business customer base of Bouygues Telecom, Coriolis founder and CEO Pierre Bontemps told Les Echos. Coriolis does not own a network at present and intends to remain a virtual operator. As Orange has an estimated 70 percent share of France's business segment, competition authorities are likely to recommend a disposal. Orange is in talks with Bouygues about buying the latter's telecom assets.
