BOUYGUES : B&YOU sets the standard in low-cost offers

11/06/2012 | 05:55am US/Eastern

Press release

Paris, 6 November 2012

B&YOU sets the standard in low-cost offers

? The first plan with unlimited calls, SMS and MMS for

?9.99/month

? The most generous plan on the market for ?19.99/month: with unlimited calls/SMS/MMS, 3GB of mobile internet in H+ up to 42 Mbit/s (dual carrier) and to 50 fixed line international numbers (now includes Algeria and Morocco).

Paris, 6 November 2012 - After launching on 10 September the only prepaid card with no expiry date, with the market's lowest rates, B&YOU is now setting a new standard in low-cost offers by introducing two ground-breaking plans on the French market. All B&YOU customers currently subscribing to the

2 hour plan for ?9.99 and to the 24/7 & 3GB Internet plan for ?19.99 will get all the new features automatically.

The 24/7 plan Calls/SMS/MMS for ?9.99/month with no minimum term contract



Ever since its creation, B&YOU has focused on designing simple plans that satisfy the demands of its own community of users and that are in line with their actual usages.
According to observations by French telecoms regulator Arcep, one out of two French people does not use their mobile phone to browse the Internet1.

For the first time on the market, B&YOU is launching a plan aimed at big-volume call and SMS users at an exceptional price.

20 MB are included in the plan to cover unwitting data usage (connections to weather forecast apps for example). Customers can surf the net at a rate of ?0.05/MB if they want.
This plan will be available up until 28 January 2013 for an initial period.

The 24/7 & 3GB Internet plan The market's most generous plan for ?19.99/month with no minimum term contract



B&YOU regularly adjusts its plans according to suggestions posted by its user community in the "Your ideas" section of its web site.
24/7 & 3GB Internet plan subscribers will now have international calls included following overwhelming requests from B&YOU users (to Algeria, Morocco, China and several European countries amongst others) and will be able to surf the net using their mobile handsets up to six times faster (up to 42 Mbit/s thanks to H+ dual carrier technology), thus making this plan the most generous on the market at

?19.99/month.

Note that B&YOU offers a complete mobile Internet service where all usages are allowed (VoIP, Newsgroups, P2P, Modem usage, etc.).
