Our strategic plan: Lead the Future
As a major digital service provider in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, we have recently launched our Lead the Future strategic plan. It is based on a new enterprise model centered around three principles: performance, excellence, and trust, to help us develop a more sustainable ESG enterprise model.
The quality of our infrastructure, where we are a pioneer in fiber, our customers’ satisfaction (NPS) and the expertise of our teams as well as our solid finances give us an unrivalled competitive advantage. In addition, thanks to our mastery of connectivity, security and resilience, Orange is uniquely placed in the sector. This plan aims to enhance and develop these strengths to position Orange as the group that builds the future of telecoms and digital solutions. Our aim is to achieve sustainable growth, particularly in cybersecurity, in Africa and in the Middle East.
Now more than ever, telecoms networks are core to our business activities, the environmental transition, and society at large. Our products and services are essential for our full range of customers – whether individuals, companies, administrations, other telecom operators, internet service providers or global content providers.
- In 5 years, data traffic carried over telecom networks has increased by a factor of 10 the world over.
To respond to these ever-increasing uses, we have pursued an ambitious plan to deploy reliable, resilient, high-performance, and secure networks. This connectivity contributes to the development and appeal of many regions and communities.

Telecommunications, a story that began in the 18th century
On April 30, 1794, in France – in the midst of the Revolution – a telegram was sent, marking the very first transmission of a telegraphic message on the Lille-Paris line.
It symbolized the birth of Chappe’s optical telegraphy and the beginning of telecommunications development in France. As a whole new business sector emerged, the world of telecoms led to a different way of life for all of us, all over the globe!
