French term or phrase: niveau d'équipement
In an article about digital radio.

Ce taux élevé d’équipement garantit à la radio une audience journalière importante : en moyenne la radio est écoutée tous les jours par 9 européens sur 10.
En France, avec un taux d’équipement supérieur à 99%, on ne compte pas moins de 130 millions de récepteurs, soit près de 6 par foyer.

Thanks for any help.

agree  Deborah Workman: Yes. "The high penetration rate [of the device] ..." OR "Radio's high penetration rate ..." "Penetration" is the term that would commonly be used.
