In 10 years, Free Mobile has grown and gained weight. But one thing has not changed: its very aggressive attitude towards its prices. The operator recalls this by inflating, over the next few days, the data envelope of its mobile plans. And as a bonus, Xavier Niel offers us a “presidential” video.
Ten years to the day after its launch, it was January 10, 2012, Free Mobile does not seem to have aged. The operator has shaken up the codes of the sector by democratizing “non-binding” offers, which has led to halving the price of mobile plans and bills in France, from 27.3 euros per month in 2012 to 14.30 euros in 2022, according to figures from INSEE and ARCEP. Already very generous in data, the operator wants to mark the occasion for its 10e anniversary, by delivering packages with generous GB envelopes.
As you know, Free and Xavier Niel have got into a habit: making Tuesday the day of announcements and renewed or transformed benefits. Except that anniversary requires, it was necessary to adapt, and rather than a Tuesday, it is therefore a Monday that Free Mobile made its new announcements. And the gifts are pretty tempting.
- Regarding Free package, offered at 19.99 euros / month and 15.99 euros / month for Freebox subscribers, the operator is giving a boost to its data envelope, which increases to 210 GB in 4G and 5G, against 150 GB usually. And this at no extra cost.
- The Free series, for its part, goes to 100 GB of data (against 70 GB in recent days), all complemented by 10 GB of roaming. The price of the offer does not change, and the Free series is still offered at 10.99 euros per month for one year, before switching to the Free Package at 15.99 euros / month.
Attention, the extension of the data of the Free series is temporary, warn the operator well. It is only valid from January 10 to 18 as it is. And in addition to this extension of the data envelopes, Free Mobile indicates that subscribers and prospects will be able to take advantage of exceptional discounts until January 19 in stores and online on the mobile rental offer with option to buy and without commitment from the operator, Free Flex, on which you can find the explanations of Xavier Niel and Thomas Reynaud. Free Mobile will also offer a contest (from January 10 to 14) through which ten smartphones (Apple, Samsung, Xiaomi and OPPO) will be offered to the winners.
Free Mobile, a 10-year Revolution: “ Freedom, equality, unchanged prices »
In 10 years, Free Mobile has shone by its regularity. Its offer has only gone from two proposed packages to three, for a range therefore with high visibility, with identical principles: without commitment, unlimited calls and SMS, a 2 euro package that has become legendary, a Free Package always at the same rate.
The subsidiary has obviously grown. The Free 3G and 4G networks cover almost the entire French population, and the operator, as we said this weekend, has adopted a 5G strategy focused on the coverage of the territory (77%). Free Mobile, being the fourth representative of telecoms, makes it possible to maintain France as the European country where the price of mobile telecommunications is the lowest in 2021.
Today, Free has a vast network of 150 stores and has 21,600 mobile sites (places that can accommodate antennas), with the objective of having 25,000 throughout France by 2023, to cover the most remote areas. .
