Numericable-SFR’s FTTH network passes 288,000 households in Loire Valley

26 Mar 2015

The Numericable-SFR Group has announced that its fibre-optic network, capable of delivering download speeds of up to 400Mbps, has passed over 54,000 households in the city of Angers, the chief-lieu of the Maine-et-Loire department. Further, the operator disclosed that more than 288,000 households in the Loire Valley are now eligible to benefit from fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) services with downlink speeds up to 20 times faster than an ADSL connection.

Meanwhile, the enlarged group is said to be planning to drop the Numericable and Virgin brands, and operate under the SFR moniker, according to Journal du Geek. An unnamed company source has been cited as saying that an announcement is expected on 1 April, with SFR also said to be planning to unveil its new fixed and mobile offers on that date.
