Santa Clara-based technology firm NETGEAR has been selected by France’s largest cable operator by subscribers, Numericable, part of the YPSO Group, to supply it with a Wireless Cable Voice Gateway (CVG834G). Numericable’s services are currently available to approximately 40% of all French homes – its network passes more than 9.5 million households – and using CVG834G will allow Numericable to offer its customers a new service package of 200-plus channels of video, 30Mbps internet access, unlimited voice calls and home networking. With over 4.5 million TV, internet and telephony subscribers, Numericable has a 99% share of the French cable market. Its service area covers more than 1,200 communities across the country, including Paris and its surroundings. The YPSO/Numericable group was formed through the mergers of Est Videocommunication, France Telecom Cable, TDF Cable, NC Numericable, UPC and Noos.
