Iliad to speed up rollout, boost earnings in 4-player market

Monday 4 April 2016 | 10:31 CET | News
French telecom group Iliad said that it will pursue its growth in a market with four major operators after the failure of a consolidation agreement around a proposed merger between Orange and Bouygues Telecom. Iliad's subsidiary Free will accelerate its rollout of fast broadband fixed and mobile networks and the sale of its "simple and attractive" offers. Iliad said it will start using another 10 MHz in the 700 MHz band on 06 April and 15 MHz more spectrum in the 1800 MHz band at the end of May. It is aiming for 16 percent EBITDA growth this year.
