France calling plans
France is the third leading telecoms market in Europe. The current France Telecom (Orange) is a major player on the world stage with interests in markets throughout Europe, and Francophone-Africa. In the face of sector liberalization, the company continues to dominate every division although growing competition from a number of key players, especially Iliad and SFR, have slowly diminished their lead.
The country is also investing in a national fibre-network, mainly in reaction to the activities of smaller companies in the industry. The mobile division is controlled by three providers, with comparatively minute, but gradually increasing MVNO competition as the robust broadband sector has experienced continued growth. Such growth stems from the regulatory measures promoting competitor admission to exchanges via local-loop unbundling, in addition to fibre infrastructure and ducts.
Furthermore, France also has the advantage of a regulator that has promoted fibre optic innovation and from legislation launched since 2008, which facilitates fibre accessibility amongst providers.
