Free Mobile Shakes Up France Mobile Phone Market in Q3 2012

by Neil Mawston | Dec 12, 2012

According to our Country Share Tracker (CST) service, the French mobile phone market grew a modest +1% year-over-year in Q3 2012. Handset shipment growth has been flat in France for two quarters now, as the country continues to struggle for economic growth. Samsung dominates in France, while Sony and LG are showing tentative signs of improvement. Free, a low-cost operator, continues to shake up the market. This published report, available to clients, tracks handset vendor market share at the four major French operators -- Orange, SFR, Bouygues Telecom and Free Mobile -- from Q1 2009 to Q3 2012. The report is an important tool for measuring the health of individual handset brands at the operator level (e.g. Apple at Free).
