Quarterly growth in French mobile connections stalls in Q2

Monday 6 August 2018 | 09:04 CET | News
The quarterly movement in French mobile connections ground to a halt in the three months to June, and the year-on-year growth rate slowed to 2.0 percent after climbing to 2.6 percent in the March quarter, according to Arcep's latest statistics. Both consumer prepaid and postpaid connections were impacted, whereas year-on-year growth in B2B subscriptions improved to 3.5 percent. Meanwhile, the M2M market continued to progress at a steady, albeit slower pace, up 21 percent on June 2017 to reach 16.56 million connections (+876,000 quarterly net additions).
