In very densely populated areas, where there are 1.7 million homes, Bouygues will be able to use Orange's fibre networks up to the foot of buildings. Within the buildings, it will have to build its own networks or subscribe to available cable-sharing offers. Outside very densely populated areas, Bouygues has subscribed to France Telecom-Orange's wholesale cable-sharing offer, potentially giving it access to 8.9 million homes.
