Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband Market – France Statestical Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2018 – 2022

“Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband Market” adds “France – Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband – Statistics and Analyses” reports to its Database.


France’s second telco SFR to be rebranded as Altice in 2018France has the third largest telecoms market in Europe. The incumbent telco Orange Group is one of the world’s major operators, with interests in markets across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Domestically, the company still dominates all sectors despite market liberalisation, though increasing competition from major players such as SFR Group and Iliad has gradually eroded this lead. 

The mobile sector is dominated by four providers, Orange, SFR Group, Bouygues Telecom and Free Mobile, complemented by a good number of MVNOs which together have a market share of subscribers approaching 11%. The MNOs have invested in network infrastructure and technologies in recent years. LTE-A providing data at above 300Mb/s has extensive coverage, while both Orange and Bouygues Telecom are involved in 5G trials. The regulator has also been supportive, having in late 2017 started a procedure to allocate a portion of the 3.5GHz band for 5G in anticipation of that technology coming into commercial use. 

This report introduces the key aspects of France’s telecom market, providing statistics on the fixed network, an analysis of operator strategies, and a review of the key regulatory issues including the status of number portability, wholesaling and carrier preselection. The report also assesses the mobile voice and data markets, providing analyses on recent developments related to spectrum licensing and regulatory issues, as also on the deployment of emerging technologies.
