A warm welcome to Altice Portugal and Orange France, the newest members of ETIS!
We look forward to the sharing of their insights and best practices in a number of our working groups, from information security to procurement and vendor management to network and IT transformation to data privacy.
Orange France is part of Orange Group, which is the twelfth largest mobile network operator in the world and the fourth largest in Europe. As of the beginning of 2018, Orange has been a leader in FTTH networks with 9.1 million fiber-ready households in France as well as in 4G coverage and quality. Its mobile network reaches 96% of the French population and France’s telecoms regulatory authority has ranked it as the country’s best for the last 7 years.
A subsidiary of Altice Europe, Altice Portugal is a leading telecommunications and multimedia operator based in Portugal. The company’s activities extend across all telecommunications segments: fixed line, mobile, multimedia, data and business solutions. They are currently focused on investment in innovation and infrastructure, with 97% of the country already having 4G coverage and enabling Portugal to be completely fiber ready by 2020. They are currently in the development and roll-out of next-generation 5G networks, with the first expected commercial use to start as early as 2019 or 2020. Altice was also a sponsor of the 2018 ETIS Community Gathering, which took place in Lisbon.
