Free in France adds 100K IPTV Subscribers

In 3Q07, Free, the number three competitive carrier in France, added 141 broadband subscribers bringing its total to 2.767 million. It is forecasting that it will reach 2.8 million broadband subscribers by the end of 2007 and 4 million by 2010. It also expects to have 8 offices equipped to have FTTH services available to 241 thousand homes by the end of 2007.

The addition of 141 thousand broadband users means that Free added at least 100 thousand subscribers that are capable of accessing its IPTV services, giving it a total of 2.1 million IPTV capable subscribers.

Free provides the capability to receive basic IPTV services to nearly all of its unbundled subscribers; however, not all of them use the service. Consequently, the term "IPTV capable" is used here.
