Bouygues Telecom and SFR have signed a network sharing agreement.
The companies are to roll out a new, shared network in an area covering 57% of the French population (excluding the 32 biggest urban areas in France and certain blind spots). The new network of shared base stations is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
Negotiations had been underway since July.
- Bouygues Telecom currently serves 11.1 million mobile and 1.9 million fixed broadband customers across France, which include more than 1.5 million business and corporate clients.
