Getting Free in France

Finally, the mobile plan that going to revolutionise the mobile market in France has came up.


Free thank you, people are now Free to pay cheaper communication rates in France!


After weeks of intense buzz, orchestrated by the owner of Free, Xavier Niel, the operator launched this morning its range of mobile plans “Free Mobile” expected to revolutionise the industry.

During a press release, Xavier Niel has unveiled a unique package at 19.99 euros (£16.54) , sold from today and introduced as the cheapest of the market. Free also proposed a “social” offer, in reference to the economical plan set up bythe government, but that will be accessible to anyone on benefits. For 2 euros per month, this plan offers 60 minutes of communication and 60 SMS per month.

Also, for all new Freebox customers ( for your information Freebox is the broadband offer of the company providing TV with 200 channels, home phone with unlimited calls in Europe & USA/Canada and unlimited internet), Free also provides benefits:the broadband package will be marketed only 15.99 euros (£13.23) instead of 19.99 euros (£16.54) and the “social plan” will be free .

Competition is becoming fierce in France between the three big operators Orange, Bouygues, SFR and the new entrant Free!

And here? When are we going to get this kind of plans?? We’re still waiting, I really hope that Free will extend its market in England. 😀

Born and raised in Paris, I am a Marketing and Sales professional. And now, I am a blogger! I used to be Australian, German and French (Parisian) and now a Londoner lady since February 2010. I love everything about France: the food, the wine, the fragrances, the designers, the music and our attitude, energy & character. My blog is not all about cosmetics nor fashion, is about what is happening in the world in a French perspective: how do we think? What do we think? Why do we thing like this? And what do we French think about YOU strangers from all over the world! It was my passion for arts, culture, international events & news, fashion that drove me into creating La French Attitude and I love every minute of it and I hope you too! Enjoy! Sté xxx
