15 Sep 2005

French mobile operator SFR says it has signed up 300,000 3G customers since launching its full consumer range of UMTS services nine months ago. The telco says 3G phones now account for 40% of all handsets sold and its 3G users downloaded 30,000 songs and 15,000 video clips in August alone. SFR had 15.6 million subscribers at the end of June, giving it a 36% share of the French mobile market. It expects its 3G network to provide 60% population coverage by the end of this year.
