Half of French households to subscribe to triple-play by 2014


Share Half of French households will subscribe to a triple-play offer by 2014 as operators invest in Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) to stay competitive, according to a new report from Pyramid Research, the telecom research arm of Light Reading.
Pyramid forecasts that 30 percent of households in France will subscribe to a triple-play offer by the end of 2009, a number we expect to increase to almost 50 percent by 2014," said Jan ten Sythoff, EMEA Manager at Pyramid Research and author of the report. "Pyramid expects quad-play adoption to gradually increase to make up 3 percent of households by 2014."

Fixed-mobile convergence will become an increasingly important competitive focus over the next couple of years, according to the report, entitled 'France: Multiplay Success Drives FTTH Interest'. "On the fixed side, investments into fibre will be key to maintaining a strong position in the fixed broadband sector; the development of FTTH is a key issue, and ARCEP, the regulator, is promoting cooperation in order to drive FTTH coverage," added Mr. Sythoff. "On the mobile side, competition will increase with the launch of the fourth network, as well as increasing numbers of MVNOs."

Pay-TV competition in France is described as having intensified with the entry of DSL and fibre operators, as content offers and packages are a key differentiator in triple-play bundles. "Orange has also started selling satellite TV as part of its triple-play packages, in order to provide nationwide TV coverage, not possible through its DSL network," said Mr. Sythoff. "Cable operator Numericable is investing in fibre technology, and we therefore expect cable subscriptions to decline."
