Iliad's subsidiary Free has announced the introduction of a temporary service for new and existing customers, in response to the Covid-19 lockdown that has resulted in the closure of all its retail stores. Remote assistance is now available over the phone for the operator's fixed and mobile plans. To access the service, customers need to book an appointment online to receive a call-back from a member of Free's retail staff.
