Cheap package (less than 10 euros): the April 2021 selection

[ad_1]

Selection updated on April 29, 2021. With its 200 GB of data and its very attractive price over one year, NRJ Mobile’s offer wins all of our votes. The Free Mobile package offers you 10 GB more for the same price as last week. In the segment of offers under 5 euros, we recommend the latest Cdiscount Mobile, very accessible over 6 months and generous for use in mainland France. Finally, the La Poste Mobile package remains the best “low price” subscription marketed “with no time limit”.

If you don’t want to invest more than € 10 per month in your mobile plan, our selection should interest you. Many “low-cost” subscriptions are aimed at all types of consumers, including travelers and / or mobile users who are not eligible for fiber and who would like to benefit from a good volume of 4G / 4G + data. Free Mobile was the first operator to really cut prices among the historic four. Facing him, the MVNO operators (NRJ Mobile, Cdiscount Mobile or even Auchan Telecom) as well as the respective subsidiaries of Orange, SFR and Bouygues Telecom, namely Sosh, RED and B & You. Market players have been betting for several years on promotions valid for 6/12 months or on marketed offers “without time limit”.

The figures indicated for the average speeds and the network coverage of the operators are those of ARCEP.

The operator La Poste Mobile offers a promotional package at less than 10 euros marketed “without time limit” which has 30 GB of data including 10 GB for mainland France.

Current “cheap” mobile plans according to CNET France in April 2021:

If you are ready to change your offer after one year, we recommend that you take out the NRJ Mobile 200 GB plan at € 9.99 per month for the first year. In our opinion, the offer should be seized for its very aggressive price and its generous internet envelope in metropolitan France and correct in Europe / DOM.

“No-time limit” marketed offers are currently lacking in appeal. La Poste Mobile’s promotional proposal is the strongest, although its data envelope is limited to 30 GB.
