Free?

Post by Steve&Julie » Mon 27 Jul 2020 09:12

Hi. I have a few questions about Free 4G. Can anyone help please?
1) Do they do a box that devices can connect to over wi-fi?
2) Will it work with Amazon fire stick and Chromecast?
3) Will it allow or be aware of a VPN being used.
4) can normal voice calls be made on a UK mobile phone (dual SIM is possible)
5) is 4G realistic as a solution to watch 60 hours standard def TV a month?
6) is it comparable in cost to orange landline broadband?
Thanks

Yes http://mobile.free.fr/la-box-4G.html
2) Will it work with Amazon fire stick and Chromecast?
Yes

Yes but VPNs over 4G are usually slower than a normal connection you can watch UK TV without a VPN with

4) can normal voice calls be made on a UK mobile phone (dual SIM is possible)
The router has its own SIM that allows mobile calls - you just plug a landline phone into it. It has nothing to do with your mobile phone ubnless you make VOIP calls with it
5) is 4G realistic as a solution to watch 60 hours standard def TV a month?
Very - the free offering allows up to 250GB a month, standard definition TV is about 1-1.5GB per hour
6) is it comparable in cost to orange landline broadband?
I believe it is cheaper and you get a discount on Free mobile phone contracts
Thanks
