Orange is the biggest If you want safety in numbers, stick with Orange. It’s by far the biggest operator in France with over 10 million users. The company also has around 100,000 employees in France, which is worth taking into consideration because it means you’re (probably) more likely to have your phone call answered or your technician actually arrive.
