of the world that surrounds us. Indeed, a digital revolution proceeds everywhere in the world. There are multiple stakes in today’s global world such as competitiveness, growth development and new markets. The digital economy has reached an important place in national economies as well as in the world economy since it represents a quarter of the current world’s growth. It hasbecome the most dynamic sector in the worldwide economy. Currently, fiber optics has revolutionized the field of telecommunication. In France, the state plays an important role in the development of this technology in order to make it accessible to everyone. In this perspective, I will study the case of the installation of the optical fiber network in France. To do so, I will first identify andanalyze the impact of the French state in the development in this field and then compare the different government policies between France and the United Kingdom.
