Communiqué de presse

third quarter 2002

24 October 2002

ART released today its Mobile Observatory for the third quarter 2002.

The Observatory includes the following information:

  • 0.4% growth in the number of active subscribers in Metropolitan France

  • a slight slowdown in the growth of total subscribers on the national market (metropolitan France, Overseas Départements (DOM) and Mayotte) reflecting the change in the validity period for Bouygues Telecom prepaid cards.

Still, this is just one market indicator. Other indicators, such as growth of traffic volume (voice and SMS) and operators’ sales show continuing dynamic growth on the mobile market.

ART is also releasing an analysis of the changes in the mobile situation on the Metropolitan market, ranking France with respect to its European neighbours.
