Orange to expand FTTH offering to all French rural fibre networks

Thursday 14 March 2019 | 09:59 CET | News

Orange will soon commercialise its FTTH broadband offers in France across all the public initiative networks (known as RIP, Reseaux d'Initiative Publique) currently being deployed by third-party operators such as Covage, Altitude and Axione. Nearly 2 million French premises were covered by these rural networks at the end of 2018, according to telecom regulator Arcep. Within this footprint, Orange's fibre offers are already available to over 500,000 households and businesses. Coverage will be extended to nearly 3 million eligible premises by the end of 2019, across public initiative networks run by third-party operators and those where Orange is responsible for the deployment.

The number of households and businesses able to access FTTH services in France rose by 1 million in the last three months of 2018 to reach 13.6 million, including 5.3 million located in very densely populated urban areas. For the same period, Orange has recently reported that its FTTH offers were available to 11.8 million premises across the country.
