The French fixed broadband market continued to achieve a steady progression in fibre-based connections in the three months to June, recording 635,000 FTTP net additions since March (+607,000 in Q1). According to Arcep's latest report, the FTTP segment reached 8.31 million total lines across mainland France and the overseas territories, representing nearly 28 percent of the overall fixed broadband market. At end-June, the country's FTTP take-up rate stood at 40 percent (meaning that 40 percent of people able to access FTTP services have opted to do so), up from 37 percent a year earlier.
