Deployment of fiber optics

Elected officials from the Brive-la-Gaillarde agglomeration (19) request that orange failure be officially recognized on their territory. A first in France. Elected officials accuse the operator of not having respected his commitments in terms of deployment of fiber optics.

The president of the British agglomeration (19) has enough. Enough delays in deployment of optical fiber on its territory, enough unwarmed promises, enough orange commitments. “It has been 2 years since our territory should have been covered and it is still not”, deplores Frédéric Soulier. In 2010, Brive’s agglomeration chose Orange as part of a call for demonstration of intention to invest (Amii) to cover 100 % of its fiber optic territory by 2020. A first step assessment had already forced the agglomeration to shift this coverage at 2022. But while this new deadline is approaching, we are still far from the result. According to the elected official, only 88 % of the premises would be connected. 6,000 premises still would not have access to fiber optics.

Sanctions of up to 25 million euros

Brive’s agglomeration wrote well to Orange, met its leaders and even threatened to take coercive measures, but nothing has done it. The deployment continues in slow motion and the operator does not seem to consider any acceleration. “It feels like Orange does what it wants, when it wants it. Today, we have no choice but to go up a gear “, warns Frédéric Soulier. The mayor of Brive has just sent a new letter to Orange before officially asking Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne to note the non-compliance with the commitments by the operator and to declare his failure. The agglomeration also intends to request the application of the planned sanctions which, according to her, could reach 25 million euros, then entrust the deployment to Dorsal, the mixed union which deployed the fiber in the rural areas of the department of Corrèze.

This procedure is a first in France, but Frédéric Soulier hopes that others will follow. Because Brive’s agglomeration is not the only one in this case. Everywhere in France, communities are facing deployment delays, mainly in the amii areas. Orange does not deny delays on Brive’s agglomeration, but ensures that the eligibility rate is actually 93 %. She also recalls that she deploys 60 % of optical fiber in France on her own funds and that she intervenes across the country, in zones “In perpetual evolution”.
