Orange to launch 5G service in France during December, unveils new plans

Thursday 8 October 2020 | 16:08 CET | News
Update: 9 October 2020 | 08:56 CET
Orange customers in France will start benefiting from the operator's 5G service during December. The news coincides with the launch of four new 5G-compatible voice and data plans. At the entry-level price point, customers will pay EUR 39.99 per month, after the initial 12-month discount, for a plan offering unlimited calls/texts, 70 GB of 5G data, and an optional second SIM for another connected device. This represents an additional EUR 5 per month compared to an LTE plan including the same data and calls/texts allowance, but a paid-for second SIM (EUR 5/month).
