December 27, 2018 – News
On Monday, December 24, Prime Minister Édouard Philippe signed a set of 17 government funding pledges for community-led public initiative networks.
President Emmanuel Macron has made broadband coverage (fixed and mobile) a strong political axis of his mandate.
The announcement made by the Prime Minister is part of this effort: the envelope of 620 million euros aims to accelerate massive deployment of very high speed in these 17 territories, which represent more than a quarter of the French population .
They contribute decisively to the objectives set by the President of the Republic in terms of fixed digital coverage, namely the generalization of broadband throughout France in 2020 and ultra-fast broadband in 2022, supported by an investment of some 3.3 billions of euros during the five-year period.
The Government welcomes the significant progress made in broadening broadband coverage in France. Indeed, nearly 3 million premises have been made connectable to fiber optics during the last twelve months, bringing to 19.6 million the total number of households eligible for a very broadband offer.
