Free Mobile: bad for jobs?

MEPs also heavily emphasized the issue of employment. The arrival of Free Mobile is it a good thing? Xavier Niel replied that the number of people working in telecoms decreased until 2009, when Free was awarded a license to become the fourth operator. The group has hired over 1000 people to take care of Free Mobile and continues to recruit. It also creates several thousand indirect jobs, particularly in construction with the installation of antennas.
To drive the point home, he invited members to compare the ratio CA / employees of Free and Bouygues Telecom. The latter, which employs 9,000 people, 4,000 more employees would have had if the same ratios as Free.

Niel has spoken about the matter MegaUpload and different laws against piracy, whether in France or the United States. The chief strategy of Iliad believes that in all cases, court intervention is necessary. We can cut Internet without a court order. If he readily acknowledged the need to do everything possible to fight against piracy, the question arises of sharing in the creative industry. Niel said that this year, Universal had enjoyed record profits and at the same time with the exception of a few, times were tough for artists. Incidentally, the leader could not help observing that the artists that rolled on gold were rarely imposed in France.
