French telecom executives see no short-term prospects for market consolidation

Friday 22 February 2019 | 10:09 CET | News
Orange CEO Stephane Richard believes that a move from four to three MNOs in the French market has become less likely, reports Les Echos. The comment coincided with a similar statement from Martin Bouygues, CEO of the Bouygues group, who said that there are currently no consolidation talks among operators. Industry commentators had identified a window of opportunity for a potential deal in the first half of 2019, as the start of the process for the forthcoming 5G spectrum auction would prevent any strategic alliances being formed later in the year.
