Paris Gets FTTH Project
“Free’s decision to open up its network is unique in Europe and a remarkable development for the European broadband marketplace,” said Hartwig Tauber, President of the FTTH Council Europe. “The partnership with City authorities demonstrates how FTTH projects are becoming increasingly recognised for their potential economical and social benefits, and validates the widely accepted belief that competitive FTTH is possible where civil infrastructure barriers are addressed.
This new project is fully in-line with The “Paris-Digital City” initiative and we note that in this case, the co-operation between Free and the Municipality of Paris is a fundamental cornerstone of the deal, helping make Next Generation Broadband a reality in the French Capital.”
