Free Mobile to reduce roaming speed on Orange network

Monday 1 August 2016 | 18:48 CET | News
Free Mobile's customers roaming on Orange's 3G network will progressively receive a lower mobile broadband speed, reports Le Figaro. In mid-June, Iliad's subsidiary Free Mobile and Orange agreed the terms under which Free Mobile will gradually phase out roaming on Orange's 2G/3G network by the end of 2020. Under the new terms, a first speed reduction will take place in September, when the current maximum download speed of 21 Mbps is set to drop to 5 Mbps. After that, 3G speeds will continue to decrease every year, falling to 384 Kbps by 2020.
