Inflation is pushing up the prices of the vast majority of SFR and Bouygues Telecom’s fixed and mobile plans, while Orange also expects a similar increase in a few months.

Inflation is everywhere. Unfortunately, there are no exceptions for mobile plans, just like fixed internet plans, whose prices are also increasing. An article published by the consumer association UFC-Que Choisir allows us to see more clearly and prepare for price increases by operators and ISPs. Orange, SFR and Bouygues Telecom are the main ones affected while in Free the offers seem spared for the moment.

It is important to note that the UFC-Que Choisir points out that the price increase among operators is not satisfied with affecting new customers, people who are already subscribed will also put more of their hand in the wallet. The justifications put forward are classic in this inflationary period: the increase in the costs of energy and materials must be passed on. Other interesting information presented by the association: these price increases are usually directed at a particular package. However, the price increase here affects almost all mobile and landline plans.

Up to 2 euros increase per month

UFC-Que Choisir reviews the increases between the different operators.

Bouygues Telecom

According to the association, Bouygyues Telecom was the first to increase its prices and “the increase varies from 1 to 2 euros” and will apply from the beginning of February according to an email sent by the company to its subscribers. UFC-Que Choisir gives the example of the 40 GB B&You package, which sees its price rise by one euro per month. Double for the 80 GB package.

The association even explains that a client saw her bill pass for an offer that combined cash and mobile from 65.89 to 69.89 euros already last October.


The prices of almost all mobile and fixed plans in SFR and Red by SFR increase from 69 to 99 cents per month. However, in its article, the association points out a practical lack of transparency on the part of the operator in the red box.

In fact, SFR did not send any emails or SMS. Instead, the group is content with an insert at the bottom of the January bill advising that an increase would apply at the next due date in February.


On the Orange side, an increase is planned, but not immediately. It will be in March or April when an increase of one to two euros per month is applied to almost all fixed and mobile plans according to UFC-Que Choisir.

On the other hand, the main subscription with Orange’s social discount will not increase, explains the association. At the same time, the Coup de Pouce offer aimed at people with a family quotient equal to or less than 700 euros would even see its price lowered to allow them to continue connected to the Internet at home.


On Free, prices for mobile plans won’t change for at least the next four years. Good news that the UFC-Que Choisir qualifies a bit by remembering that the ISP offers relatively high prices for fixed Internet.

Unable to oppose price increases

For those affected by price increases, it will be impossible to challenge. In fact, the UFC-Que Choisir recalls article L. 224-33 of the Consumer Code that allows telecommunications operators to increase their prices without restrictions as long as they inform customers at least one month in advance so that they can cancel their packages. .
