Auchan Telecom to drop triple-play services

19 Nov 2012

The French mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) and fixed line reseller Auchan Telecom is to suspend its fixed telephony and internet service as it returns to its core business as an MVNO. The firm, which is part of retail group Auchan, intends to abandon its triple-play fixed, mobile and internet offering Auchan Box to concentrate solely on cellular services. It cites poor customer take-up and price pressures as the reasons behind its decision.
