French MVNO Prixtel starts charging extra for 5G access

Friday 1 October 2021 | 09:13 CET | News
MVNO Prixtel, which has reportedly been acquired by SFR parent Altice, has made a subtle change to its top-tier plan ('Le geant'), available since January. The 5G-compatible tariff no longer offers inclusive access to 5G, which is now only provided as a paid-for add-on priced EUR 5/month. The cost of the postpaid subscription remains unchanged for LTE access, starting at EUR 14.99/month after the end of the one-year promotional period.
