Virgin Mobile France finds niche, mobile data at EUR 10/mo

Thursday 12 January 2012 | 10:09 CET | News
MVNO Virgin Mobile France has launched a EUR 10 a month subscription with 4 hours of calls, much more than most customers use, and 3 GB of data (like new MNO Free Mobile). Virgin is seeking a niche not addressed by Free Mobile; consumers who want mobile internet at less than EUR 20 a month. Virgin also replied to Free by launching a EUR 19.99 subscription offering unlimited calls in France, Les Echos reports. But the service comes with no tie-in period and no subsidised handset, customers pay for MMS and unlike Free Mobile, international calls are not included.
