Decision n°2010-1312 adopted by ARCEP setting the regulatory framework for Fibre-to-the-home (FttH) rollouts in low-density-areas was ratified by a decree dated 10 January 2011. This decree was published in the OJ of 18 January 2011. With this ratification, France becomes the first EU country to have its regulatory framework for FttH rollouts entirely settled. This should give actors in the sector the legal certainty they need to plan their first investments.
