Orange eyes sale of SFR BeLux with interest

Wednesday 27 July 2016 | 11:02 CET | News
Orange is interested in SFR Belgium and Luxembourg, which is reportedly up for sale, De Tijd reported. Orange head of Europe Gervais Pellissier said during a conference call on the company's quarterly results that the company is following the sale process by Altice with interest, but has not taken a decision on whether to bid. SFR Belux has a network passing around 260,000 households, with 110,000 customers and revenue of EUR 75 million. A takeover would see Orange Belgian acquire its first cable network assets, after earlier this year launching services using wholesale cable access.
