French term or phrase: zone arrière NRO
The context is a press kit about a contract to operate and maintain a fibre network. This term is a caption to a diagram showing the rollout of fibre across a French department.

I think my problem is that I haven't yet found a satisfactory translation for NRO - noeud de raccordement optique. So if I understand correctly, the NRO is a node that houses the equipment used by providers to acrtivate fibre broadband access for its subscribers. So the zone arrière would be the area & houses covered by a specific node. Not sure of the industry-specific jargon in the UK however?

Any help much appreciated!

That's how I would say it. I want to say "hinterland" though.
