ARCEP joins the efforts that are currently underway to expand social offers

Paris, 2 October 2009

In his speech at the seminar on the Digital society: "Investing today for growth tomorrow", on Thursday, 10 September 2009, Prime Minister François Fillon spoke of the work being done to eradicate the digital divide created by economic inequalities. Mr. Filllon hoped that the regulatory framework would make it possible for operators to quickly roll out attractive broadband offers at preferential prices for low-income members of society.

The Authority fully supports this objective, and has indeed stated just such a position in several of its opinions. ARCEP has joined the efforts that are underway to expand social offers and will play an active role in implementing the new system.
