  • 1. FTTH in France: building the ecosystem FTTH Council Conference London 21st February 2013 Philippe Distler Board Member 1
  • 2. FTTH milestones Summer 2011 Late 2010 • Launch of the national and 2011 broadband plan • Decisions fixing (EUR2bn) call for the technical projects Summer 2008 and economic • Access to FTs rules for ducts is regulated deploying FTTH • LME bill: unique local loop Late 2006 terminating fibre segment + access • Initial obligations discussions on FTTH deployment 2
  • 3. ARCEP’s regulation consists of two complementary tools Access and co- shared network investment obligation shared in the last “drop” access point (symmetric regulation) duct regulation Access to France Telecom’s civil engineering (asymmetric regulation) The objective is to provide an incentive to invest in fibre deployments while safeguarding and improving competition. 3
  • 4. ARCEP’s regulation consists of two complementary tools shared network shared access point duct regulation Access to France Telecom’s civil  access to poles and ducts since Jun-11 market analysis decision engineering (asymmetric regulation)  cost-oriented prices, economic terms set in Nov-10 (decision No. 2010-1211) with a significant drop in prices  creates a level playing field for access to ducts and poles 4
  • 5. ARCEP’s regulation consists of two complementary tools Access and co- shared network investment obligation shared in the last “drop” access point (symmetric regulation) duct regulation  decisions No.2009-1106 for very-high density areas, and No. 2010-1312 elsewhere  facilitate rollouts on private property and reduce the risk of a local monopoly through sharing the last drop  lower deployment costs through infrastructure sharing and co-investment schemes  ensure consistent coverage in less dense areas  the location of the sharing point is a compromise between infrastructure-based competition, cost sharing and technological neutrality (PON and P2P) 5
  • 6. Key elements of the ecosystem Ensuring Information Providing Cost reduction effective sharing visibility access Public/private Technical: network Reusing existing commitments in the In-building wiring maps infrastructure national broadband plan Architecture of the Strategic: public local Cost sharing (co- local loop (eg. size of Stability of the authorities’ digital investment) the shared access regulation strategic plan point) Ladder of investment Deployment (co-investment ex coordination: ante, ex post, renting public/private individual access fibre) great for the supply side…but key is to trigger the demand side! 6
  • 7. The rollout of FttH is in progress 8170 km of ducts leased to France Telecom by alternative operators (Q3 2012) 2 038 000 FttH homes passed (+51% y.o.y.), of which 328 000 by public networks In 976 000 households, another operator than the one who equipped the building has a passive access to the network (+141% y.o.y.) 7
  • 8. … but the penetration rate is still limited at this stage  1,5 M subscribers to ultrafast broadband including 270 000 on FttH and 570 000 on renovated cable (FttLA infrastructure and DOCSIS 3.0)  8,8 M homes passed for ultrafast broadband (cable + FttH), excluding homes covered twice  Penetration rate of 17% (13,4% for FttH) 8
