SFR loses court case against Orange over share of fibre roll-out

Monday 5 February 2018 | 10:36 CET | News
In parallel to its legal action, SFR also lobbied French telecom regulator Arcep, which in October 2017 supported calls from Orange's rivals for a redistribution of 'AMII' areas, in order to accelerate the speed of fibre deployment. The government, however, has so far leaned towards keeping the status quo. In November 2017, secretary of state for regional planning, Julien Denormandie, expressed his disagreement with the views of the regulator, saying that stability was needed to facilitate a faster fibre roll-out.
