During this period of deconfinement, certain operators think of the most modest households by offering inexpensive internet boxes, at less than 10 €. This is particularly the case for Free and SFR, which currently each market such an offer. At SFR, an exceptional promotion is underway, with the limited series called “Welcome Back”. The latter allows you to take advantage of fiber optics or ADSL for € 10 per month only for one year. On the Free side, the Freebox Crystal is available for € 9.99 / month during the first year of subscription. However, the latter is only compatible with ADSL. What are these cheap internet boxes worth, and how to benefit from them?

An internet box at less than 10 € to grab at Free
In addition to SFR, the access provider Free also offers a cheap internet box, less than 10 € per month. This is the Freebox Crystal, which is available for € 9.99 per month only during the first year of subscription, instead of € 24.99 per month. Unlike the SFR offer, this cheap internet box is however reserved for customers who are not eligible for fiber optics. Here, we will have to settle for broadband with ADSL.
For this advantageous price, the Freebox Crystal also only includes a bouquet dual play : Internet and telephone. To obtain a TV decoder and access to more than 220 television channels, it will therefore be necessary to subscribe to the Freebox TV option, which costs € 4.99 per additional month. Otherwise, it is also possible to switch to the higher offer, the Freebox mini 4K, which is available in fiber optics.
This promotional offer is however reserved for new customers of the Internet service provider. To benefit from it, you must also agree to commit for a period of 12 months to the ISP. As for termination fees and commissioning fees, they each cost € 49, just like with the operator in the red square.
