Numericable corners four-fifths of fibre market, Arcep says

21 Nov 2011

A report published by the French telecoms regulator Arcep says that cableco Numericable had connected 450,000 of the country’s 550,000 ultra-high speed broadband internet customers to its fibre-optic network by the end of Q3 2011. Telecompaper notes that the announcement supports Numericable’s claim to be a leading player in the French fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) segment, and a key developer of triple-play and fibre-based services outside very densely populated areas.
