Telecom Italia France will test very high speed broadband in the 8th and 10th districts of Paris in the next few months, writes Les Echos. The company’s Alice France subsidiary has chosen its suppliers, but does not divulge them. Slightly under 500 buildings will be connected to reach a target of 2,000 to 3,000 customers for the pilot service, according to the operator’s mass market director, Daniel Fava, who told the newspaper that the project’s cost will run in the "low millions of euros". In comparison, the cost of deploying fibre across France is estimated to be EUR 30 billion. Alice France had 87,000 ADSL customers at the end of June, including 59,000 who took up IPTV service. The unit made a EUR 103 million operating loss on a EUR 183 million turnover in the first half.
