France Telecom has been proposing its ISDN (integrated services digital network) service to residential and professional customers since 1987 under the Numéris brand name. Numéris provides voice, data and image transmission at much higher speeds than ordinary telephone lines, while using the same medium. Numéris customers pay a fixed cost on commissioning that covers the costs of connection and a monthly subscription. The base rates of Numéris calls are the same as for standard calls.


In the residential customers’ market, where ADSL has taken over, Numéris continues to be offered and proves to be useful for customers located in areas not yet covered by ADSL. For professionals, “Numéris Accès de base” (basic access) enables PABX to be connected and the use of telephony PABX facilities continues to grow. “Numéris accès primaire” (primary access) for bigger sites is designed for businesses. Since December 2001, France Telecom has offered “Numéris Grand Site” to businesses, a broadband fiber optic voice connection that allows access to a wider range of services with a rate that reduces as use increases. Numéris has now achieved its target expansion level with regard to the customer categories for which it was intended and has approximately 5 million customers.
