NFC Adoption in France Accelerates

A total of 3.5 million consumers in France now have smartphones compatible with the country’s Cityzi NFC service, up from 2.5 million in February, according to figures released by AFSCM.

In addition, there are now 36 different mobile phones that support NFC payments on the market in France, an increase of 39% over the past five months, said AFSCM.

“We see a real acceleration of NFC equipment rate at the national level, making it now possible to deploy large scale services leveraging this technology” says Thibault Dreuille, the association’s CEO.
