As part of the deal, Iliad's subsidiary Free has transferred ownership of a FTTH network covering 1 million premises to the new company, which has been created to bring fibre connectivity outside very densely populated areas of France. Iliad has sold 51 percent of the new entity to InfraVia, based on an enterprise value of EUR 600 million.
