Orange says SFR lawsuit over fibre optics network coverage dismissed

French telecom operator Orange said on Friday that rival telecom group SFR had lost a lawsuit against it over fibre optic network coverage, confirming a report on the website of newspaper Le Parisien.

Le Parisien reported that SFR was seeking more than 3 billion euros ($3.36 billion) in damages over access to infrastructure for network coverage. Instead, the court ruled that SFR must pay 300,000 euros to cover the trial costs, Le Parisien said.

A spokesman for Orange confirmed Le Parisien story.
