A very bad surprise for B & YOU subscribers has just fallen: Bouygues Telecom announced the increase from € 4.99 to € 8.99 of one of its plans. In return, however, it promises more data.This is not a surprise, Bouygues Telecom likes flash promotions. After announcing a web exclusive two years ago, the telephone operator seems to have changed its mind. This mobile plan was originally available for € 19.99 per month. Bouygues Telecom decided, however, for a very limited period, to promote it at € 4.99 per month. While this price was announced initially without increase, the operator seems to have changed his mind since the 4G package tends to drop to € 8.99 / month. This sudden increase is also denounced by the UFC that Choose. The association stresses however that this practice remains usual among operators. Free and SFR, in fact, also increased some of their plans last winter.
This 80% increase in the B & YOU offer to 20 GB, valid from 02 July 2020, changes the terms of the 4G package. Until 1er July, subscribers can keep their offer, but by doubling their data envelope. Beyond 1er July, Bouygues Telecom also specifies that the additional data included will be chargeable. In detail, the operator promises that the services will be different because of the inflation of the package. The consumer defense association the UFC that Choose criticizes the message sent by Bouygues Telecom to its subscribers. She regrets the confusion around the Go offered before the start of next month and paying after the 1er July. The association draws attention to the vagueness surrounding the new services that Bouygues Telecom offers to its subscribers.
A legal practice on the other hand, since the law authorizes this increase. Telephone operators have the right to change their prices if they allow subscribers to refuse to subscribe to the new offer. Bouygues Telecom therefore complies with the terms and conditions in accordance with the legislation. The operator effectively guarantees in its message that subscribers have the full right to refuse the offer. For this, they must however respond before July 2 Otherwise, Bouygues Telecom will automatically apply this increase in the mobile plan. Note that the package concerned remains without obligation. No termination fees can be requested by the operator.
As a reminder, Bouygues Telecom proposed calls, unlimited SMS / MMS, 20 GB of data without commitment or increase beyond 12 months. This was a very good deal for new customers, who only had a few days to take advantage of it. In addition to services in mainland France, 2 GB of data was available internationally. Bouygues Telecom’s international offer also made it possible to benefit from communications in roaming, especially in Europe. At the moment, at this price, Bouygues Telecom offers a far less ambitious mobile plan. The first offer at € 4.99 per month indeed displays unlimited calls and SMS / MMS, but only 100 MB of data.
Points to remember about increasing the B & YOU plan to 20 GB:
- 80% inflation of the package now at € 8.99;
- 20 GB additional free before July 1, 2020;
- Bouygues Telecom provides new services to come.
