The Vaucluse General Council (Conseil général) recognized the need to set up a regional high and very high speed digital network to reinforce our attractiveness and dynamism. The mission was given to Vaucluse Numérique, a General Council Public Service Delegate (DSP), which set about deploying the optic fiber infrastructure and the first 10 000 FTTH connections (fiber to the home) at the end of 2013. By December 2014 Vaucluse already had a 541 km network.

The Vaucluse digital network enables companies, public bodies and private individuals to profit from a sustainable healthy competition on the telecom market, and to access the best operator services at competitive prices.

This public-private investment represents :

  • 21.4 million € over 3 years (2012 to 2014) and 220 million € over 25 years
  • A network of 702 km of fiber optic cables
  • 14 Unbundled Telephone Exchanges
  • Connection of 103 activity zones and 283 major public sites (universities, high schools, hospitals…)
  • Almost 10 000 FTTH connections deployed
  • A digital network immediately available to 10 500 enterprises
  • Equivalent digital services and prices to those of the major European cities
  • 280 enterprises currently use the publicly-funded network. 85% of Vaucluse’s economic players are within reach of the fiber optic network
