2022, fiber continues to expand its web in France

The Internet continues to move faster and faster for the French, if the latest fiber optic adoption figures are to be believed.

According to the Electronic Communications and Postal Regulatory Authority (Arcep), fiber optic internet in France continued to be rolled out in 2022, despite major disparities across the territory.

2022, 18.1 million fiber subscriptions in France

In the fourth quarter of 2022, the number of fiber optic subscriptions increased by 965,000, bringing the total to 18.1 million as of December 31. Fiber thus represents 84% of the total number of very high speed subscriptions and 57% of the total number of high and very high speed subscriptions (+11% in one year).

2022, 80% of premises connectable to fiber in France

In the fourth quarter of 2022, 1.3 million additional premises were made fiber connectable, i.e. around 10% more than during the same period in 2021. The deployment over the whole year thus amounts to 4.7 million lines, leading to a total of 34.4 million, or nearly 80% of domestic premises.
