Free’s 5G package is entitled to an increase

Don’t worry, you won’t pay more for your Free Mobile 5G plan. The increase in question today does not concern the price, but the amount of internet data offered by the subscription. This is the offer at 9.99 euros/month for Freebox Pop customers, 15.99 euros for other Freebox subscribers, and 19.99 euros/month for non-subscribers. While Free customers are entitled to an unlimited amount of data in 5G, others were until now limited to 250GB.

The package increases to 300 GB, for everyone, without conditions

Good news if you have subscribed to the Free Mobile 5G plan without being a Freebox subscriber! Now, you have the right to 300 GB, paying the same. In its press release, the operator recalls that “Since 2012, Free has regularly increased the data envelope of the Free 5G Package without changing its price and multiplied this envelope by 100 including “.

This change is not restricted, unlike certain operators, who offer attractive offers only in the event of a new subscription, and in addition for a limited period. A practice that perhaps harms them, because it is not sustainable in the long term.

You have undoubtedly already been confronted with this, since these are offers of this type: 120GB in 5G at 11.99 euros for 6 months, then 45 euros/month (yes the final price is a little exaggerated). Consequently, in France, a good number of people change operators every 6 or 12 months, to take advantage of these temporary price reductions.

A practice that Free Mobile has chosen to avoid, by blocking the price of its most popular subscription for several years. As a reminder, the price of the Free 5G package will not increase until 2027.

The operator who revolutionized internet subscriptions continues little by little to grab market share from its competitors. The share of Free Mobile subscribers increased from 5.4% in 2012 to 22% in 2022. Especially since in terms of customer satisfaction, Free does better than SFR and Bouygues, according to an Arcep survey.
