RezoGirls #15

on Thursday, 18 November 2021 Posted in News Rezopole

RezoGirls #15

France-IX Lyon, in partnership with Wild Code School, invites you to the 15ᵉ RezoGirls meeting on Tuesday 07 December at 6:30pm. The theme of this edition: "Digital inclusion: the new societal challenge to be met".

 

Knowing how to use common digital resources (Internet, word processing...) has become almost as essential as knowing how to read, write and count. Not having access to the Internet or not knowing how to use digital tools is therefore a real handicap.

 

Today, 17% of the French population is illiterate, even though 77% have a smartphone and 76% a computer. There are many factors of inequality. Major divides persist between the inhabitants of our country, depending on the territory, the level of qualifications and income, age of course, or personal situation.

 

The consequences of digital exclusion are both personal and professional, with the impossibility of accessing one's rights, finding a job, housing, or just keeping in touch with loved ones... How can we make the digital world more inclusive? Our speakers will debate the subject based on their respective experiences and will provide a relevant analysis of this phenomenon.

 

Program

     18h30-18h45 : Welcome
     18h45-19h00 : Presentation of the speakers
     19h00-20h30 : Round table
     20h30-21h45 : Cocktail - Jacques Lafargue caterer

Fibre: Pressure on infrastructure operators

on Friday, 08 October 2021 Posted in News Rezopole

Fibre: Pressure on infrastructure operators

Even if the deployment of fibre optics is beating all records, there are still many hurdles to overcome in order to guarantee very high speed broadband.

 

Starting with the quality of service, a subject that continues to mobilise the authorities. The failure rate for final connections is still around 17%, compared with 25% a few months ago. Although there is some improvement on this front and the 'noodle dishes' in the mutualisation points and the optical connection points are tending to decrease, the situation is not without irritation for Cedric O.

 

When questioned, the Secretary of State for Digital Affairs did not mince his words against infrastructure operators, who are in charge of deploying fibre optics on the territory. "If qualitatively, things seem to be going a little better, we are not at the end of the story," he said, before pointing to the responsibility of Orange and XpFibre (ex-SFR FttH) in this matter.

 

The two operators have still not ratified the new version of the subcontracting contract with the commercial operator (STOC), unlike their competitors - Altitude, Axione and TDF. Implemented a few months ago, the V2 of this contractual framework is intended to restore order to relations between building operators, commercial operators and their subcontractors.

 

Although the delay accumulated by XpFibre and Orange in signing the STOC V2 contract should soon be resolved, the infrastructure operators still have work to do to remedy the defects in the final connection. This problem of the quality of final connections is not new. A working group set up by Arcep on the subject was already reporting in 2019 on "significant rates of defects in the execution of final connection and cross-connection operations at the point of mutualisation".

Optical fibre: France will succeed

on Friday, 08 October 2021 Posted in News Rezopole

Optical fibre: France will succeed

"The objective will be met: to bring very high speed broadband to 100% of French people by the end of 2022, 80% of which will be fibre - probably more," said Cédric O, the Secretary of State for Digital Affairs.

 

After a decade of work and more than 20 billion euros invested, the figures prove him right. Indeed, two thirds of French households were eligible for fibre optics last spring. With a current rate of 15,000 new homes and businesses seeing fibre arrive on their doorstep every day, the 80% mark will be passed by the first half of 2022.

For French people not covered, there is an alternative solution offering speeds of over 100 Mb/s: VDSL, cable or, soon, satellite - thanks to the commissioning of Eutelsat's very powerful Konnect VHTS.

 

The gamble has therefore been successful nine years after the launch of the "France Very High Speed Plan". Especially since the objectives have been raised: the estimated total number of households in France has risen from 36 million in 2013 to 41 million in 2022, without lowering the 80% mark. And that there was no shortage of difficulties: shortage of raw materials, shortage of manpower, stoppage of construction sites at the start of the pandemic, etc.

 

The work still needs to be finished, because even in large cities, around 10% of homes are still without fibre optics. In medium-sized towns, the situation is not satisfactory either. They were supposed to be fully covered by fibre by the end of 2020. Six months after the deadline, only four out of five homes were eligible. The government and Arcep are passing the quid on a possible sanction, but a certain annoyance is perceptible on the part of the authorities. As for the countryside, fibre is being rolled out at breakneck speed. But they are not fully covered by the projects already launched. About 2 million homes are still in limbo. These lines, the most complicated to build and the least profitable, will require new subsidies.

 

Through the stimulus package, the government has already put €150 million on the table. The industry estimates that at least two to three times more will be needed. An evaluation mission should be made public at the end of the year. We will then know how much the next executive will have to invest if it wants to bring fibre to 100% of French people.

New transatlantic cable in Bordeaux

on Friday, 01 October 2021 Posted in News Rezopole

New transatlantic cable in Bordeaux

One of the main transatlantic cable projects concerning France has just "landed" on a beach at Porge, near Bordeaux. The project was initiated by Facebook and built by Alcatel Submarine Networks. Orange, partner for the French part, was responsible for the operation. This required horizontal drilling 20 metres below the beach and the dune, in order to limit the impact on the environment and in particular the forest.

Named "Amitié", this cable links Massachusetts in the United States to Porge in France and Bude in England. It is 6,800 km long and carries a total of 16 pairs of optical fibres. It is scheduled to come into service in early 2022.

 

The French incumbent will benefit from two fibre pairs on this cable and will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the "landing station". Orange will provide the terrestrial links from this station to Bordeaux, then Paris and Lyon, and finally the rest of Europe. It also states that the cable will enable new data centres to be set up in the Bordeaux area.

 

Another transatlantic cable, "Dunant", was recently commissioned in the Vendée by Google. With traffic between Europe and North America doubling on average every two years, investment in new infrastructure is needed to absorb the increase. Between them, "Dunant" and "Amitié" will have more capacity than any previous transatlantic cable.

Patrick Drahi breaks his teeth on Eutelsat

Patrick Drahi breaks his teeth on Eutelsat

Reuters reported that Patrick Drahi was in discussions with European satellite operator Eutelsat about a possible takeover. A deal that would have seen one of his investment vehicles take direct control of the Paris-listed company. "An offer for Eutelsat, which has a market value of €2.3 billion ($1.96 billion) and is backed by public investor Bpifrance with a 20% stake," according to Reuters. This was rejected by the satellite operator as being too low.

 

The man recently received regulatory approval to take telecoms group Altice Europe private after its minority shareholders approved his bid to buy the company. In June, he had taken a 12.1% stake in UK telecoms operator BT Group using the newly created Altice UK vehicle. According to unnamed sources, the billionaire had no intention of merging Eutelsat with his telecoms and media assets and would like to keep the French company in a separate holding company.

 

For its part, incumbent Eutelsat - since 1977 - recently bought nearly 24% of UK rival OneWeb for $550m - the biggest deal since CEO Rodolphe Belmer took office in 2016.

Iliad wants to buy UPC Poland

With the integration of the Polish operator Play completed, Xavier Niel's company has launched the acquisition of the cable operator UPC Poland. The latter is presented as "one of the leading Internet service providers in Poland with 3.7 million homes covered by fibre and 1.5 million subscribers".

 

The transaction is estimated to be worth 7.0 billion zlotys, or €1.53 billion. "The transaction will be financed with debt and cash available at Play". Completion is expected in the first half of 2022, after approval from the relevant authorities. UPC Poland will then be a subsidiary of Play.

Altice signs an agreement to acquire Coriolis

on Friday, 24 September 2021 Posted in News Rezopole

Altice signs an agreement to acquire Coriolis

SFR's parent company, Altice France, announced on 20 September that it had reached an agreement to acquire 100% of Coriolis Télécom. 415 million: an initial purchase price of 298 million euros and a deferred payment of 117 million euros. The transaction is subject to regulatory approval and is expected to be completed in the first half of 2022.

 

Coriolis Télécom is a French independent operator, founded more than 30 years ago. It has a customer base of more than 500,000 and 30,000 businesses in fixed and mobile services in France.

This takeover will allow SFR to benefit from Coriolis' expertise, partnerships and distribution networks to complete its offers.

 

Patrick Drahi's group is not new to takeovers. Indeed, it has already acquired Réglo Mobile last May. The virtual mobile operator, which belonged to Leclerc, enabled Altice to increase its customer base by 770,000 subscribers.

Thanks to these two acquisitions, the total number of consumer subscribers increased by a little over 1.2 million customers.

 

The concentration movement in telecoms continues. While SFR has acquired two other virtual operators, Bouygues Telecom has also acquired Euro Information Telecom (NRJ Mobile, CIC Mobile, Auchan Telecom...).

The Internet of the fields and the Internet of the cities

on Friday, 17 September 2021 Posted in News Rezopole

The Internet of the fields and the Internet of the cities

It is clear that white areas are not limited to rural deserts. They also concern tourist areas that are very popular in the summer with cyclists, hikers and coastal travellers.

In the Luberon, if optical fibre has arrived in Isle sur la Sorgue or Maubec, ADSL is particularly anaemic in Gordes, and 4G is almost absent. The various local players are suffering from the disinvestment of the main operators and the public authorities. The latter are struggling to impose a minimum service for services that are now essential at a time when administrative procedures are being dematerialised.

 

If digital technology is on everyone's lips today, once you leave the urban areas, you are in digital poverty with a two-speed France.

In a report published on 16 January 2020, the former rights defender Jacques Toubon stated that "in municipalities with fewer than 1,000 inhabitants, more than a third of the inhabitants do not have access to quality Internet, which represents nearly 75% of municipalities in France and 15% of the population". Fortunately, alternative Internet service providers and digital development companies are helping rural communities. They are setting up small-scale radio networks accessible to individuals and small businesses. These are essential local initiatives, as the France Très Haut Débit plan, launched in 2013, and the New Deal Mobile, launched in 2018, are struggling to eradicate the digital divide and ensure equal access to the Internet for all French people.

Fires at base stations

on Friday, 17 September 2021 Posted in News Rezopole

Fires at base stations

A breakdown occurred on 11 September and continued until the next day in the departments of Tarn and Aveyron. The authorities said: "Following deliberate damage to two relay antennas, 52,000 Bouygues and SFR subscribers were affected by a loss of network".

 

The exact details of this failure were not communicated, but the authorities nevertheless made it clear that it was in no way accidental. Indeed, a relay antenna and a TDF pylon were set on fire in Albi.

These actions were also denounced by the Secretary of State for the Digital Economy, Cédric O, on Twitter: "I strongly condemn the arson of a TDF tower which affected the network of SFR and Bouygues Telecom subscribers, and the communications of 50,000 people in the Tarn and Aveyron."

 

This event takes place in a very particular context. For more than a year now, we have been witnessing arson attacks on 5G antennas throughout France and Europe. While the police are investigating, some do not hesitate to claim responsibility for their acts, as was the case with the anarchist movement, according to Ouest-France.
