SFR service in France

The Société française du radiotéléphone, SFR, is a French telecommunications operator, a branch of Altice France's telecom activities.

Wholly owned by Vivendi since 2011, it was acquired by Altice in 2014, to form the Numericable-SFR group. In 2016, SFR Group was born, a Telecom, Media and Advertising group. The Numericable brand is only used by the group for its TV channel package.

SFR was, at the end of 2017, the second largest French operator in terms of market share behind Orange; the company had 14.378 million mobile customers, 5.943 million Internet subscribers, including 2.231 million households with very high-speed broadband, more than 250 operator customers and 150,000 corporate and government customers.

For the public, the group markets its offers under the SFR and RED by SFR brands and for businesses, under the SFR Business brand.

In 2010, SFR claimed to cover 99.6% of the French population in GSM/GPRS, 98.6% in 3G/3G+56 and also had more than 4 million SFR WiFi points. Today, more than 99% of the population is covered by 3G/3G+4. In France, according to a German study, SFR is one of the operators with the most secure network in France, followed by Orange, which has the lowest risk of intrusion on its own network.

In early 2014, SFR and Bouygues Telecom signed an agreement to pool part of their mobile access networks. The agreement provides for the deployment of a shared network in an area representing 57% of the population (i.e., the entire territory outside the 32 largest urban areas with more than 200,000 inhabitants and white areas).

The rapid expansion of mobile Very Broadband coverage, which is historic in terms of volume, is the result of the veritable production plant designed by SFR and supported by unprecedented investments (€2.3 billion in 2016). This pace continued in 2017 and enabled SFR to cover 91% of the French population in 4G in July 2017. SFR is reaching its target more than 6 months ahead of schedule and has announced that it is on track to cover 99% in 4G by the end of 2018.

At the end of 2017, SFR covered 95% of the French population with a confirmed target of 99% by the end of 2018.

By the end of the second quarter of 2018, the operator covered 97% of the French population in 4G.

By 2018, SFR was preparing for the arrival of 5G (LTE - B).
