L’Arcep publishes the results of its monitoring of the fixed broadband and very high speed market in the second quarter of 2021. A market whose growth has been entirely driven by the growth in end-to-end fiber optic subscriptions since the first quarter of 2020.
As of June 30, 2021, the number of FTTH subscriptions climbed to 12.4 million, or 75% of the total number of very high-speed subscriptions. The increase was 4.1 million over one year and nearly 1 million additional subscriptions during the second quarter alone.
At 16.6 million, very high speed subscriptions (maximum downlink speed greater than or equal to 30 Mbps) represent 54% of all Internet subscriptions and 40% for FTTH. The number of broadband accesses is accelerating its decline to 14.4 million.
During the second quarter, 1.5 million additional premises were made connectable to FTTH. Arcep emphasizes that 850,000 premises have been made eligible for public initiative zones, with an increase of + 95% in one year.
The pace of FTTH deployment in private initiative areas continues to slow, with 550,000 premises made eligible in the second quarter, compared to 626,000 in the first quarter.
