The 2 20 GB packages per month in detail

In detail, here is what the 2 packages offer:

B&You :

  • Unlimited calls, SMS / MMS
  • 20 GB of 4G in France
  • 12 GB of internet from the European Union and the French overseas departments
  • offered for 1 month to enjoy +70 unlimited TV channels on your mobile then € 3 / month instead of € 6


  • Unlimited calls, SMS / MMS
  • 20 GB of 4G in France
  • 6 GB of internet from the European Union and the overseas departments

As you can see, the two offers are very similar. This promotion on the RED package is valid until June 13, just like this one from B & You. In both cases, there are 20 GB of 4G on mobile networks that are equal, as well as unlimited calls, SMS and MMS from and to mainland France. Unfortunately, both formulas are limited to new customers, so if you are already with one of the two operators, you will not be able to take advantage of them.

At RED as at B & You, the package can be used abroad, that is to say in the European Union as well as in the overseas departments. This saves you the hassle of going through the cash register for a trip. There is a small nuance here, since RED is less generous by offering than 6 GB abroad, against 12 GB for B & You!

The main differences


It is difficult to decide between the two operators regarding the quality of their mobile networks, as it strongly depends on the region you are from. Overall, the two are equal according to Arcep. On the options side, there are a few differences. In Bouygues, you can enhance your package with a television for an additional three euros per month, or even with two numbers on a single package for an additional three euros per month. The consultation call is not available here. Everything is without obligation, which offers a certain freedom. Finally, it is possible to subscribe to an option that allows you to have no mobile data limit on weekends, for 8 euros per month.

@Red SFR

RED by SFR offers a double call option at two euros per month, or 15 GB + Unlimited calls / SMS from the European Union, USA and Canada for 5 euros per month. If you are planning to go to one of its destinations, this can be a determining factor. Some media options are also available: RED TV (ten TV channels) is 2 euros per month, just like Netflix at 7.99 euros per month.

We therefore give a slight advantage to the package of RED by SFR for its small bonus of mobile data abroad, and its more flexible formula according to your consumption. For a more multimedia-oriented use, B & You seems slightly more interesting, even if the package will have to be boosted with additional options.

The RIO (Operator Identity Record) is a unique identifier, composed of 12 characters (letters or numbers), which will be requested by the operator with whom you wish to subscribe. To get it, all you need to do is call 3179. A voice server will then tell you your commitment end date, as well as the RIO number of your line. Note that an SMS will be automatically sent to you with all the information communicated by the voice server.

There is no shortage of mobile plan offers and promotions, and that’s good news: we don’t have the same needs, the same requirements and the same budget. Some are looking for the lowest rate at all costs, others for maximum mobile data, a no-obligation plan, limited for the youngest, the possibility of affording a new smartphone… To find the perfect fit, you have to essential to go through the box: what do I really need and what are my financial limits?
