French Tariffs Price Cuts Slowing Down
Published on: 26th May 2014
French mobile service prices decreased by an average 27.2% in 2013, after having dropped by 11.4% in 2012.
According to analysis by the French telecoms regulator, this decrease affects all types of consumer, thanks to the development of high volume and unlimited plans for voice calls and SMS.
The price decrease reached an average 25.5% for customers subscribing to post-paid contracts (i.e. flat rate plans, including blocked subscriptions). The price of plans without a subsidised handset dropped by 28.1% compared to the previous year.
Arcep added though that it has nevertheless observed that, although prices dropped very rapidly between mid-2012 and spring 2013, the rate of decline has slowed considerably since then.
