On June 16, 2017, Free and Axione signed a master supply agreement enabling Free to propose its FTTH (Fiber To The Home) offering on the Public Initiative Networks (PINs) operated by Axione.


This agreement marks a new stage in Free's investment strategy for optical fiber networks. Over the coming fiscal quarters and as the networks are deployed, it will give Free access to an additional 2 million FTTH sockets, mainly located in areas that are not densely populated.


The agreement is also a major step forward for Axione, not only in terms of marketing the FTTH PINs that it operates but also in relation to its objective of ensuring that as many service operators as possible have a presence in non-densely populated areas.


Axione already operates public FTTH networks in 18 French départements, in the Hauts de France, Centre, Nouvelle Aquitaine, PACA, Auvergne Rhône Alpes and Pays de la Loire regions.
