We have a rich 40-year heritage of improving the world of communications through high-performing infrastructure and innovative services that have marked the history of telecommunications, from the first telematics services in France during the 1980s, to today’s NFC, cloud, 4G, fibre, and IPTV services that we’re launching on a global scale.
Throughout this period of international and technological progress, our role has been to help our customers communicate, interact and collaborate more. Orange can be a powerful and positive agent for change, and that’s why our investments go beyond high performing networks, and into the products and services that make life easier for our more than 239 million customers.
