Iliad revises FTTH goal

France has proven to a healthy competitive battleground for operators of fiber-based broadband networks and Iliad, through its brand Free, has been one of the more aggressive and innovative carriers in the market. However, the company, on the heels of announcing strong third-quarter earnings, has revised downward its fiber-to-the-home deployment goal for this year.

The carrier originally planned to pass 350,000 homes in Paris with FTTH by the end of this year, but now says the year-end figure will be closer to 241,000. Meanwhile, Iliad reported a revenue increase of 29.4% for the quarter.
