Iliad, the parent company of Free and Alice, has reported 5.5 million broadband subscribers, either ADSL or FTTH, at 30 June, out of a total of 12 million subs to fixed and mobile offers.

Between January and June 2013, around 371,000 new broadband subscribers were recruited compared to the second quarter of 2012.
Broadband Arpu is stable at 35.9 but rises to 38 for clients equipped with STB Freebox Revolution.
While stressing it will keep developing fibre-to-the-home (FTTH), Iliad has not given any details about the number of fibre subscribers or the amount of FTTH investment.
Over the first six months, the group's consolidated revenue rose 27% to 1.8 billion. Iliad forecasts revenues of over 4 billion by 2015.
