When operators are involved in a price war, customers have the edge. This is exactly what has been happening for a few days with RED from SFR and B & YOU, who are fighting a merciless battle over their mobile plan. While prices have been trending up over the past year, they have just rekindled the hostilities with aggressive pricing.
RED from SFR and B & YOU know each other perfectly. These are the two main brands of cellular plans without market ties: the first belongs to the Altice Group (SFR), the second to the Bouygues Telecom Group. They have made a habit of copying each other by price and their offerings are very similar – with the exception of a few points.
B & YOU, the first mobile plan to be drawn
This time, B & YOU was the first company to release a (and unprecedented) shock offer for its cellular plan. This is an offering with a quality we haven’t seen in a long time. In this case the first discounted package Includes unlimited calls, SMS and MMS as well as 200 GB of data (including 15 GB that can be used in the EU and the DOM) at a price of € 14.99 per month. For comparison: this mobile subscription is sold for € 24.99 in the usual time. In other words, it’s 40% instant discount.
Where B & YOU is strong is that this mobile plan retains all of the classic terms. In this case, you do not have any term obligation with this subscription, even at this price. You can therefore cancel at any time if you find something better elsewhere. However, given the current price, it will be very difficult to find a better one anywhere else. With the competition, you won’t have 40 to 60 GB for this price.
For those who use the internet very little on their smartphone, B & YOU offers a very relevant alternative. A mobile tariff with unlimited calls, SMS and MMS as well as 2 GB of data (usable in France, EU, DOM) at a price of € 5.99 per month. Once again, no telecommunications gamer is doing so well. Usually, B & YOU makes an offer for € 4.99 (one euro less) with 200 MB. With the current offer, you really have enough to use the internet on your phone.
Regardless of which mobile tariff you get from B & YOU, you are making a good choice. In terms of value for money, the brand is excellent. We can also remember that the price of its package doesn’t double after a year, that it offers excellent customer support (true) and that the quality of its network is way ahead of that of its eternal rival, RED by SFR.
RED by SFR answers with its arguments
You wouldn’t imagine SFR’s RED sitting there with his arms crossed. The brand responded quickly with an extremely compelling triple mobile plan. The flagship package with 200 GB is similar to that of B & YOU. How it happens You currently have unlimited calls, SMS and MMS, 200 GB of data in France and 15 GB in the EU / DOM for € 15 per month. Here the operator adds the “European” data envelope in addition to the French data.
RED by SFR offers a no-obligation mobile tariff, the price of which will not double after one year. The brand thus reacts to all of B & YOU’s arguments and in the end offers a more generous data envelope. We will appreciate the quality of the interfaces for customers or the simplicity of the subscription process in it.
In addition to this excellent 200GB cellular plan, which also drops the price by 40%, there are two other plans. The first is in direct competition with that of B & YOU. RED by SFR includes unlimited calls, SMS and MMS as well as 1 GB for € 5 per month. It’s the only € 5 a month plan that has that much mobile data. That means you can get the double data (2GB) for € 1 more from its rival.
If you are a more average internet user on your smartphone, RED by SFR has a third option. It’s a cellular plan that includes unlimited calls, SMS and MMS as well as 60 GB of cellular data (including 9 GB in the EU / DOM) at a price of € 13 per month. From a value for money perspective, it’s better to choose the 200GB version for € 15. For € 2 more per month you can multiply the data by 3.5.
Which operator should choose between the two offers?
After we have introduced you to the two operators, all you have to do is select your cellular plan. The first thing you need to know is that these offers are only available to “new” RED from SFR and B & YOU customers. In other words, if you are already a customer of either of the two, you cannot receive this offer. It will therefore be necessary to go to the competition to have this crazy price.
Regardless of which telecommunications operator you choose, you’ll be fine: These are the two best packages in our comparison (by far). You save 40% with this mobile tariff, which is simply XXL. With the use of 5G, the operators tended to no longer grant discounts: That costs them too much. It is therefore a great opportunity to come and not to be missed.
These two mobile plan offers end as early as February 2nd, 2021. Be careful, they can go away anytime. It is therefore better to secure your purchase so as not to be late. Further information on the RED by SFR subscription can be found here:
