Orange today said it ended its negotiations for an agreement for finalizing mobile network sharing with Free.
Orange and Free have held discussions with a view to reaching a mobile network sharing agreement in France following the 5G auction that took place last October.
Orange has decided to end these discussions given a divergence in deployment strategy. “For Orange, the quality of its networks is a priority. Its mobile network in France was ranked best mobile network in France for the 10th consecutive year by ARCEP,” Orange said in a statement.
Orange is fully committed to the deployment of fibre in France, providing two-thirds of the 24 million connectable homes that have already been built.
