Paris, nearest competitor to London has all its citizens on


London 8.2 million residents.
Paris 2.2 million residents.

Not even comparable. Paris is smaller than Manchester!

Well it looks like competition to you means population numbers.

No, you said that all Paris citizens have fibre.

So that's just 2.2 million people, so less than 1 million addresses.

It is the central Parisian area. It is well built up, affluent, densely populated and relatively easy to install fibre.

Its 'banlieu' is much larger both in area and population (another 10M+), but at lower density - I'll bet it has only a fraction fibred up.
