🆚5G or 4G mobile plan, which is better?
Now that we’ve seen the best deals on 5G mobile plans, you might be wondering what the point is in choosing it over traditional 4G mobile plans. First, the 5G network offers speeds up to three times faster than the 4G network. Then, 5G is a so-called smart technology that promises a more stable connection, even in the event of heavy traffic on the network. Also, if you are concerned about the environment, it is more responsible since it requires up to 10 times less energy to operate.
5G is already very widespread in France since it offers wide coverage in France with already 70% of the population covered. However, the conditions on the 5G offers that operators offer to subscribe to a mobile plan are less advantageous than those found on a 4G mobile plan. Indeed, very often, even if a discount is offered the first year on the said package, the latter is also subject to a commitment, in most cases of one year.
This does not leave you free to terminate when you want, unlike the majority of offers on 4G mobile plans. Then the monthly rate is higher. Count a minimum of 20 € per month, against much more competitive prices for 4G mobile offers that are regularly found under the bar of 10 euros, or even less than 5 euros. In terms of performance, 5G wins therefore logically on 4G. If we talk about value for money, 4G remains the best alternative to this day – while waiting for 5G to establish itself as the standard network deployed in France.
