Free Mobile activated its 5G network in mid-December: a customer reports having broken a speed record in Dijon with 722.80 Mb / s download on his OnePlus 8 Pro.
Free Mobile has not always been known for the speed of its networks. This is not what Xavier Niel was selling during his keynote on January 10, 2012. The entrepreneur who had obtained 3G and 4G licenses had significantly fewer antennas from its competitors, and depended, in the white zones, on roaming agreements, in particular with Orange.
What Free Mobile was offering, basically, and which completely revolutionized the telecom market in France, was for the first time to come slash prices in a market that has been singled out several times for agreements between operators. From 15 euros for Free subscribers, there is the unlimited data package – and for 2 euros or even 0 euros per month, a simple and inexpensive package, for a booster line or a package for children, for example.
5G: Free Mobile is no longer very far from gigabit per second for download
Let’s be clear, the network did not always work very well everywhere, but, this, many subscribers initially forgave Free, which allowed it to quickly grow its customer base. With the 5G that the operator launched in a small number of cities on December 15, the situation is different: Free Mobile is no longer an outsider, it is more or less on par with its competitors to start its 5G network. And it must be said, the first results are very encouraging.
The flow records are linked – the latest collected via the RNC Mobile application in Dijon shows that download speeds can easily exceed 700 Mb / s in real conditions. According to UniversFreebox, a OnePlus 8 Pro owner hit 722.80 Mbps going down. The previous records were 649.77 Mb / s at Treillières and 640.90 Mb / s at Salleboeuf.
It remains to be seen whether the finding will be maintained over time with the increasing load of the network.. Indeed, at this stage, the number of connections to the 5G antennas of Free Mobile is perhaps too low to really realize the average 5G speeds of the operator.
