Orange and Bouygues partner on fibre networks

January 17, 2012

France Telecom’s Orange and Bouygues Telecom have concluded a partnership to share Fibre to the Home networks (FTTH) deployed by France Telecom-Orange across France.

As a result, France Telecom-Orange will enable its partner to benefit from its network coverage in very densely populated areas. Within the buildings, Bouygues Telecom will have to build its own networks or subscribe to available cable-sharing offers. In this zone, the partnership potentially covers 1.7 million homes.

In addition, outside very densely populated areas of France, Bouygues Telecom has subscribed to the wholesale cable-sharing offer for the terminal part of France Telecom-Orange’s FTTH networks. With this offer, Bouygues Telecom will potentially have access to 8.9 million homes.
