should be your choice in France


According to Wikipedia -

"Free is recognized as the broadband innovations driver in France,[7][8] and as the driver of competitive ISP offers in France[9][10] and in the 30 OECD countries.[11]"

"Free contributed significantly to French ADSL boom. The offer was able to launch as soon as the incumbent was forced to stop abuse of dominant position and to apply fair wholesale prices"
"Unbundling, in France, refers to the obligation for the incumbent carrier France Telecom to lease the Local loop, because it is a natural monopoly. Although the unbundling process was intended to start by 2000, the actual unbundling process actually started at the end of 2002, after a long conflict between the French regulation authority ARCEP and the non-cooperative incumbent" - possible future case study to study.

This seems to be their target price. "On 31 August 2007, Free updated the offer with more details. Download bandwidth shall be 100 Mbit/s and TV services shall be available for two televisions, at the same price of 29.99€/month" . This alone should have most of the western world drooling!

And the coup de grace - "Free is by far the largest IPTV carrier in the World.[5] This fact is also confirmed by the TV Markets Quarterly Monitoring."

"Free has the lowest churn rate amongst French broadband providers, below 1% per month. They are also the last independent operator in France."

"Free is often designated by journalists as the "broadband maverick",[8] the "troublemaker of the Internet",[75] a "do-it-yourselfer",[7] a "pioneer in IPTV",[76] a "truly disruptive company",[10] the "geek's ISP", the "cactus of the telecoms",[77] the "Broadband Rebel", "one of the greatest French industrial successes of the last twenty years", a "Silicon Valley success story", a "Robin Hood", an "Uncle Scrooge", a "nightmare vision for Orange, SFR and Bouygues"."
