The year 2020 was marked by considerable price increases for non-binding mobile plans. With its new promotions Prixtel proves that, no, it is not necessary to pay 15 euros or more per month for large envelopes of data that we do not consume.
Do you have a no-obligation mobile plan? But how much data do you really consume per month? In its last report published in January 2021, ARCEP noted : « 4G network users […] consume, on average, 10.5 GB per month “. Suffice to say that the vast majority of users of mobile plans do not have much to do with plans of 50, 80 or 100 GB of data per month.
In 2021, Prixtel got a makeover with a new logo, a new website and new offers, but without changing the philosophy: to offer packages that suit and adapt to everyone and especially to all budgets. During the sales, Prixtel offers discounts on its three mobile plans. Here is in detail everything they offer.
Prixtel has the particularity of being the only French operator today to offer adjustable packages with data in 4G and 5 G. Concretely, this means that when you subscribe to one of its packages, you only pay what you consume, within the limits of three preset levels. Another significant advantage, as Prixtel is an MVNO, it is possible to choose the network coverage of Orange or SFR.
Prixtel also has another particularity: it undertakes to offset the CO2 emissions generated by the use of its customers’ package. Prixtel estimates that a mobile plan can generate CO2 emissions of up to 30 kg per year. To offset these emissions, Prixtel plants trees and repopulates French forests. He has already replanted 8,000 trees since the start of his engagement.
Mobile plan The big one: the most versatile
The most suitable package for the general public of Prixtel is undoubtedly The great. It has three levels, ranging from 20 to 60 GB of data in 4G, from 9.99 euros per month. So, if you consume:

Every month, the package is reset to 0 and you start from the lowest level, until you automatically move on to the next one if you use more data. It’s simple, intuitive and above all without commitment. You can decide to stop or change your plan whenever you want.
This is by far the most convenient package. The months of confinement, when you stay at home and consume little 4G, you pay less than 10 euros per month.

To assist you in this choice, a tool is made available during subscription. It is based on data from ARCEP to indicate which of the two network coverage is the best at a given address. This allows you to choose the best network at your home for example. And in the event of moving or prolonged travel, it is possible to change network coverage on request from customer service.
