Sequalum loses Hauts-de-Seine contract

Sunday 19 October 2014 | 15:59 CET | News
The county council of Hauts-de-Seine has cancelled a contract with Numericable subsidiary Sequalum to build a fibre optic network costing several hundreds of millions of Euros due to excessive delays, reports Les Echos. County council president Patrick Devedjian said the operator "did not respect its commitments and did not put into it sufficient human and financial resources" to respect the deployment timeframe. Sequalum a 95/5 JV between Numericable and SFR was awarded the contract in 2007 to roll out a very high speed network reaching 100 percent of premises by the end of 2015.
