France Telecom Companies
OPERATORS IN FIXED TELEPHONY:
Bouygues Telecom, Orange, Free (Iliad), SFR Group
France’s fixed broadband market is increasingly focussed on fibre, which accounted for 71% of all fixed lines at the beginning of 2021. Growth in the fibre sector has been stimulated by households securing faster data packages during the pandemic. The number of DSL lines has fallen sharply as customers migrate to fibre infrastructure.
MOBILE VIRTUAL NETWORK OPERATORS
Mobile subscribers: 57 Million (Postpaid) and 14.5 Million (Prepaid)
There are many MVNOs in the market (such as: Coriolis, Prixtel, La Poste, NRJ Mobile etc), though their share of subscribers fell at the end of 2020 when one of the largest of them was acquired by its host network operator.
France has the third largest broadband subscriber base in Europe.
