The Very High Bit rate is a key factor for growth and development of rural areas. Attractiveness, competitiveness, health and education; it is at the heart of many key concerns of communities, and thus for tomorrow’s structural investments. Bouygues Energies & Services accompanies cities and communities in their digital needs with technological and sustainable economic solutions.


With Axione, its subsidiary, Bouygues Energies & Services is the market leader in public initiative networks, managing 15 networks in France either by public service delegation or PFI. It covers 10% of the territory bringing high or very high bit rates to nearly 6 million people in 4,500 towns.

The only global offer on the market

Bouygues Energies & Services and Axione, with missions of public service, are present in all structural stages of a Public-Private Partnership to:

  • Design and build a sustainable infrastructure to combat the digital divide;
  • Manage financing of the project;
  • Build a local team to accompany the project in the long term;
  • Resolutely involve themselves in the development of your town;
  • Supply answers on all extension and higher bit rate issues.

A neutral and sustainable partner

Completely neutral, Bouygues Energies & Services and Axione do not have their own infrastructure and thus have no commercial activity on the retail market that could possibly directly or indirectly, disturb the management of the delegated public service. Axione, a high street stakeholder, triggers competition and innovation to bring the best in digital services to the neighbouring population and companies and develop new uses: e-health, e-education and e-administration.
