SFR (an orphan acronym of Société française du radiotéléphone ) is a French telecommunications company that provides voice, video, data, and Internet telecommunications and professional services to consumers and businesses. As of December 2015, it has 21.9 million customers in Metropolitan France for mobile services, and provides 6.35 million households with high-speed internet access. It also offers services in the Overseas Departments of France : in the Caribbean islands of Martinique, Guadeloupe, and in Guyane as well as in the Indian Ocean, in Mayotte and on the Réunion island through SRR (Société Réunionnaise du Radiotéléphone) although the company is branded as SFR Réunion.
SFR is owned by Altice and French conglomerate Vivendi. Vodafone had a 44% share in SFR until April 2011 when it sold the entire share back to Vivendi. SFR is a major partner network of Vodafone in France.
Vivendi announced sometime about March 2014 that it planned to sell its SFR division. On 14 March it announced that it would enter exclusive negotiations with Altice/Numericable, to the exclusion of Bouygues and Iliad. Arnaud Montebourg, the French Minister for Industrial Renewal, provoked a storm when he stated that the Numericable/SFR deal was a certainty; Iliad lost 7.5% of its market value on that day.
