ARCEP published today the results of two public consultations and directions about very high bandwidth in France. Very high bandwidth is an inescapable technological evolution in the medium term. Major French players have announced fibre deployments. Investments are significant and will need to be spread over several years. The concern is to ensure that this investment is borne by all operators as much as possible. But for the Authority, legislative measures are needed as require operators to share the last part of their fibre network and to be sure that access to France Telecom’s civil engineering must be guaranteed to allow all operators to invest.
