Altice and its subsidiary SFR, the second-largest French global telecommunications operator has inked a partnership with SIGFOX to integrate its Internet-of-Things(IoT) connectivity in the group’s service offering in France and internationally. Together the companies plan to offer complementary connectivity solutions starting today that democratize the IoT in all sectors of the economy and expand the offer of connected solutions for businesses and consumers.

SIGFOX's partnership with Altice will extend in all territories where the group is present, including Portugal with Portugal Telecom, the U.S. and Israel. According to SIGFOX, it plans to cover more than 30 countries with its network. 

In France, where the network already covers 92% of the population, this partnership will allow the customers of SFR to benefit from the best of the two offers: high bandwidth and low bandwidth, where they will use SIGFOX connectivity as a complement to existing connectivity solutions such as 4G or WiFi.

Michel Combes, COO of Altice, Chairman and CEO of SFR
We are convinced that the IoT market is an opportunity to seize now, with a global vision. We are talking about billions of connections. We share the same entrepreneurial vision with SIGFOX and the will to conquer new markets.

Ludovic Le Moan, CEO of SIGFOX
SIGFOX has always been convinced that the IoT requires a new type of connectivity solution, and that our offer would not compete with services offered by cellular operators.
