Television gets scant attention from Orange these days with just the one entry, even if it does show an increase of 600,000 households over the last 12 months.

The French telecoms giant has 15.832 million fixed broadband customers – a line that in itself reveals the emphasis – of which 6.956 million took a TV service.

The majority of TV homes, 5.902 million, were in France, where Orange boasts a 40% market share of the broadband market.

Poland contributed 735,000, while Spain offered just 89,000.
