The missus and I have both moved over to Free mobiles. ‘er indoors was an early adopter having had massive bills each month with Orange and also having their telesales people call her all the time. She’s saved a fortune since. The main problem is she’s become a geek.
I moved from Bouyges whom I was more or less happy with as I’m not a power telephone user. I’d hoped to just have Free for phone and Internet but the Internet speed is dissapointing where we are (tethered to computer via Android phone). Sometimes it is ok, sometimes it is unusuable. That said we are moving home ISP at the moment and I’ve been using my Free mobile for work access and it has been ok for computeree type stuff (ftp, ssh, maven downloads). The problems with the Internet speeds are hard to resolve, Free say it is France Telecom, FT say it is Free. In any case hard to use the 3GB/month data.
At home we are binning SFR who seem to cost 50 euros on an average month and moving to Prixtel, who are an SFR reseller, that should cost 22 euros/month. Also looked at AliceADSL but there are big charges for set up and cancelling the subscription but Alice do provide free phone calls.
So Free mobile is good, the Internet works ok from the phone but problems with download speeds when tethering.
