French mobile market growth accelerates in Q3

Friday 10 November 2017 | 12:56 CET | News
The positive trend in French mobile connections has continued in the three months to September, as year-on-year growth in active SIMs improved to 2.1 percent from 0.9 percent in the year-earlier period according to Arcep's quarterly statistics. This annual growth rate was the highest in two years and continued to be driven by postpaid connections. The annual movement in M2M SIMs remained above the 30 percent mark for a third consecutive quarter (+30.7% from +8.8% in Q3 2016), bringing the installed base to 14.3 million at end-September.
