What is the point of paying 20, 40 or 60 GB of data at 10 or 15 euros when some operators offer identical or even better plans for half the price? With its flexible Le petit package starting at 4.99 euros per month or its Le grand package starting at 7.99 euros per month, Prixtel’s offers are among the cheapest at the moment.
The French Days were an opportunity for some operators to organize timid promotions. Here, a package with 60 or 80 GB at 14 or 15 euros per month, there a “generous” package at 5 euros… with 1 GB of data in 4G or 4G + per month.
This weekend, Prixtel is really breaking the prices of its main non-binding packages. Two offers in particular are remarkable:
4.99 euros per month and up to 40 GB of data: the Le petit package in detail
If you are looking for a mobile plan with a real good value for money, Prixtel’s Le petit is by far the best choice. It is a flexible plan, with three price levels, associated with a certain amount of 4G data.
When, for example, you exceed 20 GB of data consumed with Le petit, you pay 7.99 euros (to automatically switch to 30 GB of data) and no longer 4.99 euros. Here are the three levels offered with the Le petit package. If you consume:
- Up to 20 GB of data, you pay only 4.99 euros per month;
- Between 20 and 30 GB of data, you pay 7.99 euros per month;
- Up to 40 GB of data per month, then you pay 9.99 euros per month.
In other words, you only pay for what you consume. If, for example, you go on vacation and you exceptionally consume 35 GB of data in 4G / 4G +, you will pay 9.99 euros this month. But then you will automatically fall back to the lowest level the following month.
This Le petit package also bears its name badly, since in addition to a good amount of data in 4G / 4G +, it has unlimited calls, SMS and MMS in France, Europe and DOM, regardless of the landing. And if you go on vacation abroad, Le petit provides 10 GB of data for use in Europe.
Last argument in favor of this package: it is possible to choose the network to which you connect, namely the Orange or SFR network. We tell you about it a little further down in the article and we explain why Prixtel is the only operator to offer it today in France.
Finally, note that this is a temporary promotion and that these very low prices are only valid for one year. After 12 months of subscription, the Le petit package will return to its usual price, namely 9.99 euros for the first level, 12.99 euros for the second and finally 14.99 euros for the last level, with 40 GB of data . The offer is also non-binding, so you can cancel the subscription whenever you want.
7.99 euros per month and up to 100 GB of data: the Le grand package in detail
Worried about running out of data? The Le grand package is the perfect alternative to the little one. This is again a flexible plan. The first level thus includes 60 GB of data in 4G / 4G + for 7.99 euros per month and the last level goes up to 100 GB, for 12.99 euros per month. Here is the detail of the three stages. If you consume:
- Up to 60 GB of data, you pay only 7.99 euros per month;
- Between 60 and 80 GB of data, you pay 10.99 euros per month;
- Up to 100 GB of data per month, then you pay 12.99 euros per month.
For a data envelope of between 60 and 100 GB of data in 4G, Prixtel currently offers the cheapest prices on the French market. Here again, it is possible to choose network coverage, whether at Orange or at SFR.
As with the Le petit package, Le grand has unlimited calls, SMS and MMS in France, Europe and overseas departments, regardless of the level. It also benefits from an envelope of roaming a little more generous, with 15 GB of data to use in Europe.
The Le grand package is currently on sale for one year. Again, after a year of subscription, the package will return to its initial price: 14.99 euros for the first level, 17.99 euros for the second and 19.99 euros for the last. Again, this offer is non-binding.
Orange or SFR? The only packages that leave the choice of network
Prixtel is today the only French operator to allow its users to choose the network coverage of their package, between the Orange or SFR network.
Everything happens at the time of registration. You can then ask to be on the Orange network or on the SFR network. To help you choose the network that best covers your home (or your work), Prixtel offers a tool based on data from ARCEP, the telecoms gendarme, to check the speeds observed at a given address.
And if you notice a few weeks later that it’s finally the other network that would suit you better, no problem. All you have to do is go to your customer area and then change your network coverage.
Prixtel is committed to the environment
Prixtel has one last particularity: it undertakes to offset the CO2 emissions generated by the use of its customers’ package and its professional activity. The French operator 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.
