Internet In France
In metropolitan France, intense competition between Internet service providers has led to the introduction of moderately-priced high speed ADSL up to 28 Mbit/s (ATM) for 29,90€ per month. They often include other services such as unlimited free VoIP telephone communications to land lines, and digital television. Dial-up internet access is considered outdated.
For many years now, quotas have been seen as outdated and consequently, all the broadband internet offers in France are now unmetered.
In 2006, ISP announced deployment of fibre-optic offers (such as Erenis FTTB in Paris). Iliad is expected to launch a FTTH service on early 2009 up to 100 Mbit/s, France Telecom is testing FTTH technology in Paris with a large 2.5 down/1.2 up Gbit/s backbone. This service is available for 70€/month. Neuf Cegetel offers 50 Mbit/s up/down FTTH for 35€/month in Paris and Pau, while Numericable offers 100/5 Mbit/s cable connection in the biggest French cities for 30€/month.
