We did not have to wait long, Bouygues Telecom has just unveiled its first 5G package without commitment. So far, all mobile operators have announced 5G plans with at least 12 months of commitment.
It is today that Bouygues Telecom is launching its 5G network. No less than 20 large cities across the country are affected by this deployment, several months after the appearance of “5G ready” packages in the operator’s offer.
After announcing relatively expensive offers with commitment, Bouygues Telecom has just announced its first 5G compatible B & YOU package. This is a no-obligation mobile plan.
B & YOU’s 5G offer without commitment
This famous 5G offer offers 130 GB of data in 4G and 5G (including 15 GB EU / DOM), with unlimited calls and SMS / MMS for 24.99 euros per month.
We therefore see that 5G brings a slightly higher price than plans compatible only with 4G, we can indeed find mobile plans with a similar amount of data for less than 20 euros per month.
Bouygues Telecom remains the first operator to offer 5G on this type of mobile plan, pending announcements from other mobile operators.
As a reminder, 5G deployed by Bouygues Telecom is a first step in the deployment of 5G Non-Standalone which operates the 4G network. This 5G uses frequencies from 3.4 to 3.8 GHz which were auctioned by Arcep this year, ie 5G qualified as “sub 6”, lower than 6 GHz. You obviously need a compatible smartphone to take advantage of this 5G.
