IPhone: Free Mobile deal with competitive offerings - V

International calls

The basic package includes Free calls to fixed and mobile in France, the United States, Canada, Alaska and Hawaii.

The program also calls to landlines in these countries: Azores, Germany, Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Guadeloupe, Guyana, Hungary, Canary Islands, Ireland, Italy, Latvia , Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Martinique, Monaco, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Reunion, Romania, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland.

For countries that are not included, prices vary depending on destination and type of line called (or laptop). To call Algeria for example, it will cost € 0.24 per minute to a landline or a mobile to € 0.49. This is less than Orange for example, or the minute is charged € 0.55. Should be checked for each country, but Free is committed to reducing the prices of international calls and seems to have kept his promise.

Data on the international

Is shocked to supply mobile Free. If you browse the Internet using your phone abroad, the data you will be charged expensive, very expensive. In the European Union and some other countries, each Mega Data will cost € 5. It's worse in the U.S. for example, where it takes 13 € Mega consumed.

It is assumed that Free has signed an agreement with Orange since found there the prices of the incumbent. Free does not (yet?) Pass system as with other operators. Orange, for example, you can buy a pass for International Internet € 25 for 50 MB, 0.5 € the Mega. Hopefully Free quickly adds this type of offer, as is its range is certainly the most expensive of all.

About the data, the price of SMS is also quite high: € 1.10 to send an MMS or 0.13 and € 0.48 depending on the country for SMS. Again, we find exactly the prices charged by Orange.

Package at € 2

The package for € 2 per month does not include international calls, but you can call around the world. Again, the price varies depending on the destination you get along the best for € 0.08 a minute, this rate applies particularly to Europe, but also the United States.

It does not propose the Internet, but you can add data. For € 1.99, Free offers a credit of 20 Mo for use in the month. In addition, it will cost € 0.06 per additional Mega, France of course. This pass also adds to the MMS package.
