French minister says technical problems at Orange are unacceptable

PARIS (Reuters) – French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said on Thursday that technical problems at telecoms group Orange impacting calls to emergency services on Wednesday evening were unacceptable and serious.

Darmanin also told a news conference that he asked Orange CEO to meet him.

He added that Orange does not think the technical problems were a result of a cyberattack although that could not be excluded at this stage.

Orange said on Thursday that normal service should be restored in a matter of hours.

The minister for digital technology Cedric O also said Orange will have to explain the causes of the technical problems.
