Wanadoo is a French Internet Service Provider (ISP), which is a subsidiary of France T�l�com. It operates in France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Spain, Algeria, Morocco, Senegal, Mauritius, Madagascar, Lebanon & Jordan.

The origin of the name Wanadoo is subject to some controversy, as some maintain it came about in the late 1990s where all internet companies competed to choose 'Yahoo' sounding names. However it might be that the name Wanadoo first appeared in an internal project at France T�l�com, much in line with a number of other such projects such as Intranoo, Tatoo, and @noo.

Wanadoo was floated on the stock market on 18 July 2000. In 2000, Wanadoo also took over the major British ISP Freeserve, which had previously been part of Dixons Group. Following the buy-out, Freeserve maintained its own branding for a while before finally changing to the Wanadoo name on 28 April 2004.

Wanadoo is currently the largest ISP in Europe (counting the subscribers of TP) with over ten million subscribers, largely concentrated in France, the UK, Spain, the Netherlands and Poland.

Wanadoo SA (the holding company for all Wanadoo entities) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of France T�l�com SA, having bought up minority interests in late 2004. France T�l�com also owns Orange SA, one of Europe's largest mobile operators.
