SFR is a French telecommunications company.
- Founded: 18 November 1987
SFR was founded as a company in 1987 in order for its parent company Compagnie Générale des Eaux (CGE) to start offering a 1G mobile phone service using the modified Nordic telecommunications standard NMT-F, to be operated in competition with the then-telephony incumbent France Télécom’s Radiocom 2000 (fr) network. SFR also became the second French mobile network operator (after France Télécom) to launch 2G GSM services, which it did on 15 November 1992.
