Growth in French mobile connections climbs to 3-yr high in Q1

Friday 4 May 2018 | 15:52 CET | News
The positive trend in French mobile connections continued in the three months to March, as year-on-year growth improved to 2.6 percent from 1.7 percent in the year-earlier period, according to Arcep's quarterly statistics. This represented the highest growth rate since the end of 2014 and reflected a progression in both the consumer postpaid and B2B segments. These metrics exclude the M2M market, which increased by 23.8 percent year-on-year to reach 15.68 million (+783,000 quarterly net additions).
