France has the third largest telecoms market in Europe. The incumbent, France Telecom (Orange), is one of the world's major players with interests in markets across Europe and francophone Africa. Despite sector liberalisation, the company still dominates all sectors though increasing competition from a small number of major players (notably SFR and Iliad) has gradually eroded this lead, prompting it to respond with a range of innovative offers and a wide-ranging NeXT strategy to meet future customer needs. It is also investing in a national fibre network, largely in response to the activities of smaller players in this market. The mobile sector is dominated by a triopoly of providers with relatively low but steadily increasing MVNO competition, while the vibrant broadband market has seen strong growth as a result of regulatory measures promoting competitor access to exchanges through local loop unbundling, as well as to fibre infrastructure and ducts.

This report introduces the key aspects of France's telecom market, providing valuable updated statistics on the country's fixed network, an analysis of operator strategies in coming years, and a review of the key regulatory issues READ MORE >
