The majority of French Internet users surf very high speed | Geek's Journal

    This is very good news: more than half of French people have a very high speed internet connection, that is to say with a speed equal to or greater than 30 Mbit / s. These figures from ARCEP confirm that fiber is rapidly establishing itself in French households.

    Since the end of March, France has a majority (51%) of very high-speed subscriptions, observed ARCEP, the gendarme of the telecoms sector. This dynamic is driven by significant progress in fiber optic deployments (FttH) and the adoption of this technology by French Internet users.

    Fiber in strength

    The increase in the number of subscriptions to a connection offer at 30 Mbit / s or more amounted to 1.1 million during the first quarter of 2021. This is 70% better than in the last quarter of the year latest ! ARCEP calculated that 15.7 million fixed Internet subscriptions concerned these very high speed offers. That's 9 points gained in one year.

    Fiber is fully responsible for this situation: 3.8 million additional accesses were recorded in one year. The technology accounts for 11.4 million of the total number of ultra-fast broadband accesses at the end of the first quarter. Opposite, early high internet subscriptions (ADSL, cable) keep declining: on March 31, there were 15.1 million, which represents a decline of 2.8 million in one year.

    The weight of fiber will intensify in the coming months, since 25.6 million premises are eligible for FttH offers (+ 31% over one year). ARCEP also observes that the total number of high and very high speed subscriptions reached 30.8 million households, or 215,000 more (or 3.1%) in one year.
