In a statement posted on its website, Arcep says that it has requested several times that the Microsoft-owned company declare itself as an electronic communications operator. In France a company is not required to obtain administrative approval to become an electronic communications operator, but they are required to declare themselves as such before launching services, and a failure to do so constitutes a criminal offence.
