When did the fiber roll-out in Toulouse start, and when will it end?
The deployment of fiber began in 2012 in Toulouse, which is one of 106 French municipalities placed in a “very dense zone for the deployment of fiber. The government has set a target of 100% of households with fiber in 2025.
How many households are eligible for a fiber offer?
86% of households are eligible for a fiber offer in Toulouse intramural. This represents 294,000 housing units, of which 278,000 have been installed by Orange, which has a dual role: installer, and operator with its Fiber offers. In the Department, 75% of housing is eligible.
Comment other operators do?
To be able to market their offer, the other operators (SFR, Bouygues, Free are the main ones) must pay an “entry fee” to the operator who installed the network.
And for the rest of the city?
In the west of the metropolitan area, in a “moderately dense” area, that is to say the inner suburbs, Orange was the one who carried out the installation. In the east of the agglomeration, it is SFR.
There are still 48,000 households that do not have fiber in Toulouse, why?
There are several types of reasons: technical, when the operator receives a refusal from an owner to run a cable for example, or when the city refuses the installation of a pole.
In the rest of Haute-Garonne, how will the operators be to market their offer, since it is the Department that deploys the fiber?
The Department has chosen a delegatee (Fiber 31), which then sells its network to operators. Orange will be present throughout the department, all households will have the possibility of subscribing to an Orange fiber offer.
