Welcome to our English site!

A member of the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC), and deeply committed to the network of French-speaking telecommunications regulators (FRATEL) since its creation, Arcep is thus heavily involved in European and international dialogue. We are offering an English language version of our site to be able to sustain this dialogue with the entire ecosystem, beyond our national borders. On it, you will find all of our press releases, speeches, information about Arcep and its different departments, as well as all of our main publications, translated into the language of Shakespeare. You will also find links to other content that has not been translated, but which may be of interest to those of you who do speak French.

Arcep In Europe and Abroad

Internet, fixed, mobile and postal networks are an « infrastructure of freedoms »

Freedom of expression, freedom to access knowledge, to share, but also freedom of enterprise, freedom to innovate…

To protect the ability to exercise these freedoms, Arcep works to ensure that these communication networks develop as a « common good ».

  1. Figures

    Arcep publishes the 2nd quarter results of its mobiles services market observatory

    The annual increase in the number of SIM cards has remained at a high level of around 2.3 million for the past year.

    In mainland France, the growth in the number of SIM cards with business customers contributes more than 25% to the increase in the total number of SIM cards. The acquisitions of virtual operators during the quarter led to a drop in market share (6.7% compared to almost 8.3% the previous quarter) for these players. Overseas, the number of SIM cards stabilized, after three quarters of strong growth, at 2.7 million as of June 30, 2022.
