Plan France Très Haut Débit (superfast broadband plan)
Access to very high-speed broadband for everyone
Launched by the French government in 2013, the Plan France Très Haut Débit (superfast broadband plan) aims to provide comprehensive coverage of the French territory by 2022. To that end, it primarily mobilizes optical fibre, but also all the technologies capable of delivering superfast broadband.
The investment, estimated at 20 billion euros over 10 years, is shared out among private-sector operators, local authorities and the state. France has been divided into two zones. One zone, known as the private-sector zone, is assigned to private-sector operators. And one more sparsely-populated zone known, as the public-sector zone, is assigned to the local authorities. In 2018 all the French departments have undertaken a project to deploy very high-speed broadband in all their sparsely-populated areas.
Circet has put in place an organization dedicated to local authorities, with specialized and responsive regional branches that are familiar with their clients' problems. Depending on the local authority's choices, Circet works for developer operators or directly for the local authorities and provides them with turnkey services.
Circet carries out preliminary studies and deploys fixed or mobile networks from the study stage to commissioning and maintenance.
