Default GPRS in France - 21-10-2013, 07:27

In April I will be sailing from the south of France to Corsica and then Italy. I need access to the internet by GPRS for weather forecasts. Once I get to Italy I can use a Wind offer but I'm looking for the cheapest GPRS deal in France - which has to beat the 5GBP (€8.5) / Mb which Virgin UK gives.

I see that Orange FR offers 'option internet' which gives 10Mb for €6 per month. I think that can be used with a prepaid 'mobicarte'longchamp pliage

(It says on that page that the 'option plus internet' is not available with mobicarte.)

Can someone confirm that 'option internet' is in fact available with a prepaid SIM?

Any cheaper options for France? Ideally I'd want >30Mb a month.

Réponses en français bienvenues.

I used Joe Mobile, with a monthly bundle involving calls and 1GB of data for €11, worked fine in both phone and modem. You can start with 3 GB and unlimited calls for €20, and further 1 GBs can be added to either option during the month for €6 a time

Virgin UK can't charge £5/MB for EU data roaming as the regulated cap is 46p/MB. This being said, they also have a 3 month, 100MB Travel Pass for £10. If 50MB is all you need, the travel pack sure beats having to go through the hassle of buying local SIM cards.

April 2014 is too far ^^ ask your question again less than 3 months before your trip.


FR volunteer specialist in mobile.
Looks for free SIM with FR roaming Orange, Bouygues & SFR.

Delight mobile OK. Piranha mobile OK until now with a bad issue at the beginning.
