How Nordnet operates in rural zones

phone nordnet

Nordnet is present on what is called a RIP (Réseau d'Initiative Publique, or Public Initiative Network). Along with Coriolis, VIDEOFUTUR, Alsatis, Comcable, Axione and more, the provider is able to operate thanks to the French state and private investors investing funds to support the development of networks in rural areas.

This initiative was put in place in order to help deploy high speed internet on all the French territory, to make rural areas become more attractive and to reduce the technology inequalities between urban and rural areas.
