France has the third largest broadband subscriber base in Europe. Growth in 2009 has been bolstered by demand for high bandwidth applications, considerable investment in fibre infrastructure among telcos and regional governments, and a pro-competitive regulator which has promoted access to Orange's DSL network for new entrants through local loop unbundling. Recent legislation has secured similar access for fibre infrastructure. DSL still dominates the broadband market in terms of access lines, though fibre deployments have grown substantially in recent years and will continue to do so into 2016. Although the cable footprint only reaches about 40% of the population, the dominant cableco Numéricable-SFR has upgraded its network to compete with DSL and has itself entered the DSL market through the acquisition of DSL-based market players.

This report assesses France's fixed broadband market, focussing on cable and DSL as well as developments with related technologies such as ADSL2+ and VDSL2 as well as the fast-developing FttP/C sectors. It reviews the strategies of the principal providers such as Orange, Iliad and Numéricable-SFR, and considers the regulatory status of LLU and access to fibre infrastructure.


Key developments:
Numéricable-SFR launches an 800Mb/s FttP service; broadband subscriber growth remains strong at 5%; Orange deploys VDSL2 to 60% of the population, extends reach of vectored DSL; DSL subscriber base broaches 21 million; cable sector accounts for 5% of total broadband; success of fibre co-investment deals among operators; report update includes the regulator's market data to September 2015, operator data to Q4 2015, recent market developments.

Companies covered in this report:
Orange, Iliad, SFR, Numéricable, Bouygues Telecom.
