Summary
'France: To Cope with Fierce Competition, Converged Telecom Operators Focus on Bundling,' a new Country Intelligence Report by Pyramid Research, offers a precise, incisive profile of the French mobile and fixed telecommunications markets and pay-TV markets based on comprehensive proprietary data and insights from our research in the country. Published annually, this presentation-quality, executive-level report provides detailed analysis of the near-term opportunities, competitive dynamics and evolution of demand by service type and technology/platform across the fixed telephony, broadband, mobile and pay-TV sectors, in addition to a review of key regulatory trends.

Key Findings
- The mobile data segment, fuelled by rapid adoption of 4G services, is the most important driver for growth in the French telecom market. This mobile data growth is helping operators to counter competitive pressures, which have been especially strong since Free entered the market in 2012.
- To respond to Free, the established converged operators, Orange, SFR and Bouygues, are introducing multiplay bundles that include mobile services and offering additional value-added-services, such as Web hosting, personal and business cloud applications, email and IPTV to build on access revenue.
- The fixed-mobile revenue split will remain substantially unchanged from 2013 to 2018. While in most Western European countries the mobile sector will expand, in France the growth of the mobile data segment will be offset by a strong contraction in mobile voice revenue, as we expect price competition to remain robust over the forecast period.
- Following the sale by Vivendi of SFR to Altice/Numericable, we do not expect further MandA activity in the short term. However, the case for a merger between Bouygues and Free is strong, and a deal could happen. Apart from the four MNOs, consolidation is ongoing in the MVNO market.
