Statistics and Analyses

France has the third largest broadband subscriber base in Europe. Growth in 2009 has been bolstered by demand for high bandwidth applications, considerable investment in fibre infrastructure among telcos and regional governments, and a pro-competitive regulator which has promoted access to Orange’s DSL network for new entrants through local loop unbundling. Recent legislation has secured similar access for fibre infrastructure.

DSL still dominates the broadband market in terms of access lines, though fibre deployments have grown substantially in recent years and will continue to do so into 2016. Although the cable footprint only reaches about 40% of the population, the dominant cableco Numéricable-SFR has upgraded its network to compete with DSL and has itself entered the DSL market through the acquisition of DSL-based market players.
