France Telecom-Orange has announced the launch of its ‘Fibre Pro’ offer, which enables SMEs and business professionals to sign up to fibre-optic network services offering symmetrical data speeds of up to 100Mbps. The telco says the Fibre Pro offer includes fixed line telephony (including functions such as multiple-call), internet and television, as well as a range of services designed to meet the needs of professionals such as a personalised URL, a fixed IP address, the ‘e-mail for professionals’ service and a digital fax function. The offer is available from EUR69 per month and includes communications to fixed lines and mobiles both in France and abroad. The group’s objective is to bring fibre-optic networks to 3,600 municipalities (communes) across 220 agglomerations by 2015, covering all large and medium-sized towns in France. In addition, the telco says its Orange Business Services will offer a new ‘Fibre Entreprise’ range, based on its fibre-to-the-office (FTTO) network, providing additional guarantees in terms of data transfer speed and quality of service.
