Orange, SFR to bring fibre to Rouen urban agglomeration

Tuesday 17 April 2012 | 11:20 CET | News
Orange and SFR have presented the details of plans to deploy optical fibre for all households in 70 communes in the urban agglomeration of Rouen (CREA), five months after the announcement of the national agreement between the two operators. The two operators are commited to covering each municipality within five years after deployments start. They are due to begin by 2015. This means all 196,000 homes in the agglomeration will be passed by optical fibre by 2020 thanks to their investment. This agreement is a continuation of the national agreement signed on 15 November last year by France
