You have just moved and you wish to setup Internet in your accommodation, right ? Well, you’re in the right place.
First of all, you should know that there are 4 major Internet providers in France: Orange, SFR, Free et Bouygues. Most of them also have ‘low-cost’ subsidiaries, such as Sosh or RED, and it’s sometimes difficult to find your way around all their plans.
Don’t worry though, we’ve sorted it out for you: we’ve compared every plan in order to find the most suitable for international students 😉
Which provider to choose?
When comparing the broadband deals, we were surprised to learn that:
- Not even one provider has translated its website into English.
- Most providers only accept French bank accounts.
- You’ll often get a 12-24 months contract.
- All of them charge a cancellation fee of around 50€.
Nevertheless, we found an internet provider that stands out from the crowd: RED.
