French regulator Arcep has updated its dashboard on the transition to IPv6, which is part of its action plan published last year to accelerate the migration from IPv4. Free and Orange remain ahead of competitors Bouygues Telecom and SFR in rolling out IPv6 across their fixed networks, with a deployment rate of 28.5 percent, 16.5 percent, 1 percent and 0.5 percent, respectively, as of 31 March. Free has widened the gap with Orange since the previous snapshot taken on 4 December 2016, when it reported a deployment rate of 24 percent, compared to 16 percent for Orange.
