We think that 5G is going to really give birth to a global and ubiquitous global digital economy. So 5G will be a hybrid network that will mix telecoms and IT products. Thanks to this technical features, 5G will be the answer to meet all specific needs as it brings connectivity that will become as important to our digital world as oxygen is for life.

No, I don't want to buy Canal Plus. Orange and Canal Plus are important partners. Can we do more together? For sure, but on an industrial and commercial basis, not through a stake acquisition.

We will try to do this under such conditions that both in terms of price and transparency would make it really a game-changer to what exists now in the French banking sector.

If Canal Plus were up for sale tomorrow, Orange would definitely look into it. Obviously.

There are many reasons that suggest forging closer ties.

Definitely, I do think that it's a factor of success in the competition. In fact, there are 2 main factors: the quality of the networks, which is still a basic and that is why we invest a lot in our networks, fixed and 4G wireless, and innovation in services, in the user interface and in the customer relationship in order to be really perceived as a difference, a different player, a different partner, who is competitive in terms of prices but who brings clearly a lot more.

The people empowered with authorisation may have to manage, at the heart of the company, the relationship between state services and their access to our networks, but they do not answer to me. All of this is done under the responsibility of the public authorities, with a legal framework.

Now is the time to invest. It is not the time to regulate.
