Data sim for France
@loddrik – I’m over there this weekend, I’ll ask for you. I will also ask about what’s the best network (where will you be), the gf is on free.fr and the data connectivity is rubbish and that’s in Paris.
If you want to Google try Orange and Bouygues
EDIT This looks like 10 euro for sim and 30 euro for 31 days with 6gb limit. I will check with friends as my French is terrible ! (if you want to search more “sim seule” is sim only, internet is internet 8) )Posted 3 years ago
Three contracts can be used at no extra cost in France (and many others) under their “feel at home” plans. 4g in the UK at no extra cost either.
Are you sure – I have a three mobile wifi device (which is great) and it costs a fortune if where to use it there. My next sim will be a three their connectivity is great, even their 3G is miles faster and more reliable than EEPosted 3 years agohofnarMember
Loddrik will struggle with that sim as you need to recharge that sim with a french bank card. Many french companies online recharge pay thing only takes french cards. Its a common thing it used to annoy me now I have a french card to supplement my collection.Posted 3 years agoluffy105Subscriber
http://www.cellhire.co.uk can rent you both 3 and 4G cards for France and can supply it before you travel. Not pay as you go but Orange France contract sims.
They have 10GB bundles that will throttle when the limit is reached so you wont get a huge bill for overage.
In the spirit of honesty I am associated with this company so other rental solutions are available but I know about these guys.Posted 3 years agoluffy105Subscriber
Yeah, it’s not cheap but it works. They have a 10gb 4G bundle for £75 too. Depends what you need it for I guess. If it’s just the odd email and a bit of browsing then a PAYG 2gb sim will suffice i’m sure. It’s just a bit of a faff to get hold of them when you arrive on holiday.Posted 3 years agohofnarMember
Two years ago I couldn’t find any, you still have service stations that only take french cards. Must say I haven’t examined the small prints recently as I do have a french Card now. But that Bouyges says French Card and Orange refuses my visa or non french maestro cards as well.
So it read the small print or make a friend who can do the recharge for you( as its only one or two the OP will need)Posted 3 years ago
