What is the best cheap 5G plan at the moment? It can be difficult to answer this question as the number of 5G plans on sale has multiplied in recent days. However, we can mention two offers that stand out from the crowd due to their excellent quality/price ratio: the B&You 150 GB 5G plan at €11.99/month from Bouygues Telecom and the 200 GB 5G plan at €9.99/month from RED by SFR. Which one should you choose between the two?

This will depend on your mobile data needs and how much you are willing to pay each month. To help you out, here is a comparison to help you see things more clearly.

B&You 150 GB 5G package at €11.99/month

At just €11.99/month, this B&You mobile plan is a deal to grab, especially if you are a big data user and are in an area covered by Bouygues Telecom's 5G. To be sure, you can check its network coverage map.

In detail, this B&You package includes 150 GB of data to spend in Metropolitan France, including 35 GB usable in roaming from Europe and the French overseas departments. It also includes unlimited calls and SMS/MMS. The offer is free of commitment and you will only have to pay €1 for the SIM or eSIM (virtual) card. On the other hand, keeping your current mobile number is free, as usual.

Advantages :

● 150 GB of mobile internet in metropolitan France
● 35 GB of mobile internet roaming from Europe and the French overseas departments
● Unlimited calls and SMS/MMS
● Bouygues Telecom 4G and 5G networks
● No commitment
● SIM or eSIM card for €1

RED 200 GB 5G package at €9.99/month

The RED by SFR offer has more gigabytes (200 GB) and costs less (€9.99/month). It is clearly the best option if you are looking for the best possible gigabyte/price ratio.

However, this is not the only criterion that counts. To be able to take advantage of this offer, your city must first benefit from SFR's 5G coverage (its coverage map can be found here). In addition, compared to the B&You offer described above, this RED package includes fewer gigas for roaming from Europe and the French overseas departments (27 GB). It is certainly possible to have the 35 GB from these areas (including 20 GB from Switzerland, Andorra, the USA and Canada), but you will have to pay an additional €5/month).

For the rest, the RED by SFR package includes unlimited calls and SMS/MMS, does not impose a commitment period, allows free retention of the telephone number and charges €10 for the triple-cut SIM card or eSIM.

Advantages :

● 200 GB of mobile internet in metropolitan France
● 27 GB of mobile internet roaming from Europe and the French overseas departments
● Unlimited calls and SMS/MMS
● SFR 4G and 5G networks
● No commitment
● SIM or eSIM card for €10

Which cheap 5G package should you choose?

If you are looking for the cheapest offer, the RED 200 GB 5G plan is the best choice with its price of only €9.99/month. It is also the most generous in data, so ideal for more intensive uses, but only if you stay in metropolitan France.

For those who travel frequently in Europe or the French overseas departments, the B&You 150 GB 5G plan includes more roaming data (35 GB) from these destinations. It also offers the advantage of charging the SIM card €1 instead of €10, which can be an argument if you want to change your plan while minimizing the expenses incurred.

In short, these two cheap 5G packages have their own advantages and disadvantages, it's up to you to see which offer suits you best. But whatever it is, the first criterion you will have to take into account will have to be the 5G coverage of each operator. Indeed, there is no point in having a 5G package if you can't even take advantage of it where you live.
