SFR set to include 4G in all plans, but not roaming - report

Wednesday 29 January 2014 | 15:04 CET | News
French operator SFR will introduce 4G on all of its postpaid plans on 11 February, but will not include international roaming, reports Frandroid, citing unnamed sources. Rather than benefiting from a generalised upgrade from Dual Carrier HSPA, customers with compatible smartphones are expected to have to ask the operator to allow them onto the LTE network. Rather than including international roaming, as competitors have done, SFR plans to add data automatically and without surcharge to its existing Formule Carree 4G packages.
