France Telecom-Orange launches ADSL programme

Telecommunications company France Telecom-Orange is launching a three-year programme that is aimed at giving even more households the possibility of gaining ADSL access by neutralising multiplexer equipment.

The programme is part of the group’s €60m (£52m) investment in modernising its network, which is hoped to make ADSL available to more than 99 per cent of French households by 2013.
