Iliad applies for EIB support for FTTH investment

Thursday 22 September 2016 | 11:48 CET | News
The European Investment Bank (EIB) is assessing the possibility of investing EUR 200 million in Iliad's FTTH deployment programme. The bank said the amount is part of a EUR 755 million plan to extend the coverage of Iliad's FTTH network in France, targeting over 5 million homes in densely populated areas (so-called black areas) and over 8 million in areas with a medium population density (grey areas). The project covers the roll-out of the fibre network and the related investment in backbone infrastructure.
