Bouygues Telecom (French pronunciation: ​[bwiɡ telekɔm]) is a French mobile phone, Internet service provider and IPTV company, part of the Bouygues group. Its headquarters, designed by Arquitectonica, are located at the border of Paris and Issy-les-Moulineaux near the River Seine.

In January 2016 Bouygues Telecom were subject to negotiations regarding an acquisition from mobile carrier Orange,[1] which did not progress.[2]

Legal issues

Large fine for unethical business practices

In 2005 along with SFR and Orange SA, Bouygues Telecom was found by the Autorité de la concurrence (the French competition body) to have acted against the best interests of consumers and the economy by sharing confidential information between 1997 and 2003. The three companies were collectively fined €535 million in total. In November 2007 Bouygues Telecom went to court seeking cancellation on its edition.

High Court ruling to remove base station

In February 2009 the company was ordered to take down a mobile phone mast due to uncertainty about its effect on health. Residents in the commune Charbonnières in the Rhône department had sued the company claiming adverse health effects from the radiation emitted by the 19 meter tall antenna.[3] The milestone ruling by the Versailles Court of Appeal [fr] reversed the burden of proof which is usual in such cases by emphasizing the extreme divergence between different countries in assessing safe limits for such radiation. The court stated that, "Considering that, while the reality of the risk remains hypothetical, it becomes clear from reading the contributions and scientific publications produced in debate and the divergent legislative positions taken in various countries, that uncertainty over the harmlessness of exposure to the waves emitted by relay antennas persists and can be considered serious and reasonable".[4]
