Orange confirms its title! The incumbent operator now covers 96% of the French population: with such numbers, Orange offers the best 4G coverage in France. Fabienne Dulac, Executive Director at Orange, also reminded us of the company's objectives and commitments in the years to come. At the beginning of 2018, the incumbent is on the rise. According to a study by Quosi, Orange is indeed the best operator of 2017 with a national average downstream speed of 24.7 Mb / s. Same story on the side of the ANFR: from a point of view of 4G deployment, Orange is one of the champions of the past year, neck and neck with SFR.
4G coverage: Orange will run 99.6% of the population by 2024
The operator's efforts in 2017 paid off. Last November, Orange announced a 4G coverage of 95% of the population. Recently caught up by its eternal rival Bouygues Telecom, which has just announced a 4G network coverage of 95% of the population, Orange is once again managed to get out of the fray. From month to month, the incumbent confirms its leading position in the field of 4G.
But Orange does not intend to stop at these excellent numbers. Like most of its rivals, with the notable exception of Free Mobile, Orange has promised to cover 99% of the population by the end of 2018. At the rate things are going, it is expected that that the operator manages to reach his commitments without much difficulty.
But the operator sees even further. As Fabienne Dulac, executive director of the telecom, assured at the Assises de la Citoyenne de Rennes on the theme of living together, the operator wants to cover 99.6% of the French population by 2024. In 8 years ahead, Orange has promised to work to reduce the gap between the metropolis France and the so-called peripheral France. What do you think of the operator's ambitions?
