Free or RED by SFR: what is the best fiber box this week?



Free or RED by SFR: what is the best fiber box this week?

The Freebox mini 4K Free is posted at 14.99 euros per month for one year instead of 34.99 euros and always includes a commitment of one year. Opposite, we find the SFR RED Box which is still offered at 22 euros per month for life but which separates from the Debit Plus option. To "compensate", 100 GB of SFR cloud storage are offered.

The RED by SFR offer is valid until October 23rd, while Free's offer runs until October 22nd.

Duration of promos

There is no no condition of duration on the fiber offer of RED by SFR. This RED Box without commitment will be charged 22 euros per month for the duration of your subscription and you can enjoy free 100 GB of SFR cloud storage.

Opposite, Free's promotion is not eternal. It will cost you 14.99 euros per month for one year then 34.99 euros per month. In addition, it imposes a commitment of 12 months.

Advantage RED by SFR

What flows?

Out of promotion, the RED Box displays a download speed of 200 Mb / s and a send speed of 50 Mb / s. This week, the option D├ębit Plus is not offered so the offer of SFR loses its superb. On the side of Free, the Freebox mini 4K is able to reach theoretical downflow up to 1 Gb / s and upflow up 600 Mb / s against 400 Mb / s just a few months ago.

Free Advantage

On the side of unlimited calls

This week, RED by SFR does not offer the unlimited option to mobiles. It will therefore cost 5 euros extra per month to enjoy. You can however benefit from unlimited calls to landlines in France and to more than 100 destinations since its RED fiber box. The proposal of Free is quite close since the calls to the fixed are also unlimited but it concerns more than 110 destinations.

Free advantage

What to watch on TV?

At RED, there are two options with decoder included in 2 and 4 euros per month who understand 35 and 100 channels. The point goes to Free since more than 220 channels are accessible without additional cost with Freebox TV on his mini 4K.

Who offers the best equipment?

The fiber box of RED by SFR presents a recent technical sheet with the Wifi AC 5Ghz with 3×3 antennas (1300 Mbps theoretical), 4 Ethernet ports and 1 USB 2.0 port. The decoder (from 2 euros / month) is compatible UHD / 4K and accompanied by an "omnidirectional remote control with integrated QWERTY keyboard". This week you can enjoy 100 GB SFR cloud storage without additional cost.

Free is held back by the Wifi 802.11n 2.4GHz (theoretical 450 Mbps) of his Freebox Server. It also integrates 4 Ethernet ports and 2 USB 2.0 ports. Compatible UHD / 4K, the Freebox Player runs on Android TV.

Advantage RED by SFR

Our recommendation

By selecting the TV 100 channels option at 4 euros per month, the RED by SFR fiber box comes back to 624 euros after two years. For the same subscription period, the Freebox mini 4K will make you spend a total of 599.76 euros. Rates quite close in sum but without its option Flow Plus, RED box is much less interesting. We therefore advise you this week Freebox mini 4K Free.
