Orange to offer FTTH services over all PINs in France

14 Mar 2019

Orange France will be offering its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) services on all Public Initiative Networks (PINs, locally known as Reseaux d’Initiative Publique, or RIP) deployed in France, irrespective of the infrastructure operator which deployed the network. Orange’s fibre offers are already available to more than 500,000 premises in PIN areas; the number will increase to nearly three million eligible connections by the end of 2019. Fabienne Dulac, CEO of Orange France, said: ‘With this decision, we are demonstrating our commitment to fibre deployment, as well as our desire to support our customers and the public authorities. It also illustrates our enduring commitment to closing the digital divide. Residents and businesses in small towns and rural areas will be the first to benefit from this acceleration plan. Thanks to this plan, two million people living in PIN areas where fibre has been deployed by third parties will soon be able to access La Fibre Orange offers by the end of 2019.’
