French say 'non' to Netflix, reveals entertainment report


Rural broadband is rubbish in most parts of the world due to lack of population to make it economically viable. There are solutions, but it's going to take a long time to convince operators to sling fibre to every farmhouse.

The main cable operator over there Numericable offers 800Mbits and FTTH is now quite widely available in urban areas (and even a lot small-medium towns).

France certainly isn't short of bandwidth, in places where most people live anyway.
