French regulator tells Orange, SFR and Free to comply with fibre roll-out commitments in less densely populated areas

Monday 16 September 2019 | 11:15 CET | News
French regulator Arcep has published three rulings detailing separate actions taken against three of the country's network operators. The most recent of the three decisions was addressed to Iliad's division Free Infrastructure in mid-July, after the company was found to have neglected its fibre roll-out commitments in less densely populated areas. Similar failings on the part of SFR and Orange triggered the other two rulings, which date back to April 2019 and December 2018 respectively.
