Bouygues is one of the most important operators on the telephony market. To date, it has more 4 million Bbox subscribers. On the Trust Pilot online notice site, the operator holds the average note of 1.2 out of 5. Notices allow future customers to get an idea of ​​the customer service, technical service or product satisfaction level.

Nevertheless, it must be kept in mind that an unhappy customer will have much more easier to make it known than a satisfied customer. The remarks of dissatisfied customers are carried on the Fiber installation process for some people :

I was contacted by a salesperson from Bouygues Télécom to approach the Bbox. Finding its interesting offer, I decided to change operator, but today, I have bitterly regret, because it’s been a month and a half now that I am waiting for the technician for the installation of the box (meetings canceled and postponed several times without my warning . )). Not very professional all that.
De Marc – January 2023

However, it must be kept in mind that customer reviews are mixed And some users are a positive customer experience and reactive staff ::

We don’t think about putting positive opinions. But I wanted to emphasize that my experience with the technical support service went super well. Professional advisers, a suspension of invoicing during the technical problem. And the time available for a 4G key until the problem is solved.
From Nell S. – March 2022

My recent experience with Bouygues Télécom following a welding problem on the Optical Terminal Take was excellent, very good contact with the technical service (accessible in less than a minute), sending a technician, pleasant and competent, the next day , he diagnosed and repaired very quickly. I congratulate Bouygues Telecom for his technical service and his responsiveness.
Of José G. – March 2023

SFR customers: what do Internet service think ?

SFR is also one of the largest operators on the telephony market, with not far from 4 million subscribers with a fiber box. Like Bouygues, the operator knows his share of dissatisfaction.

On the Trust Pilot site, it totals 13,162 reviews with a total note of 1.4 out of 5. Disgruntled customers are a sometimes unstable connection In some places in France:

Nothing is going to flee the connection is disastrous yet I am in fiber it looks like I minitel it is anything even in 4G I have a better connection ”
Pinsorp L. – April 2023

Satisfied customer notices, however, demonstrate the efficiency of customer service and an efficient fiber connection:

Excellent value for money, € 18 for 1 year, for a coaxial connection that SFR is the only one to offer, because still no fiber access with us (92210). Installation on the agreed, fast and clean date. We can finally telework in good conditions. Refund of the termination fees of my former operator. Warm and responsive customer service. My only regret: to have waited so long before subscribing to them.
From Véronique D. – December 2022

Looking for a new Internet supplier to have a better speed, the SFR 4G box seems to meet my expectations with a Mbit’s debit much higher than ADSL for a monthly subscription price equivalent to my current package.

Orange, SFR, Bouygues Telecom or Free: what is the best mobile network in France ?

Best mobile network

TF1 Canal Plus

As every year, the Regulatory Authority for Electronic Communications (ARCEP) publishes the results of its measurement campaign concerning the quality of mobile services. Who from Orange, Bouygues, SFR and Free has the best mobile network in 2022 ?

For the 23rd edition of its annual survey measuring the quality of the mobile service in 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G, in France, ARCEP carried out millions of measures in mainland France between the end of May and the end of August 2022. They were carried out both inside and outside the buildings, as well as in transport. Here is his verdict.

Which operator has the best mobile internet network in 2022 ?

ARCEP does not go there by four paths, saying that “The four operators have very high results to the web pages display test”. That said, Orange is doing well by displaying web pages in 2G/3G/4G in less than 10 seconds in 98 % of cases. Bouygues Telecom is not far away with 95 % success, followed by free mobile at 94 %. SFR closes the walk with a score of 81 %.

Streaming video viewing “In perfect quality” was also measured. An exercise that is not always easy depending on the density of the area in which we are. However, the four operators are doing very well in dense areas with 98 % at Orange, 97 % at Bouygues Telecom, 94 % at Free Mobile and 88 % at SFR.

Unsurprisingly, the results are less good in rural areas, with a classification that changes slightly: Orange is still in the lead with 89 % success, followed by free mobile with 85 %. SFR and Bouygues close with only 78 % success.

A 5G “still being deployed”

Middle descendant rate mobile operator

For these same tests, the arcep also looked at the differences in results in 2G/3G/4G, then redone the tests by adding 5G. For the regulatory authority, “The experience appears similar”, recalling that 5G is still being deployed and that its immediate benefit is mainly perceptible where “Mobile networks are strongly asked, even saturated. »»

On the other hand, the average descendant flows measured are higher in 3G/4G/5G (94 Mbits/s) than when they are only measured in 3G/4G (63 Mbits/s). There is a significant progression compared to last year.

Operating average descendant debits

For the detail by operator at this same test, Orange offers the best descending speeds with an average of 143 Mbit/s on the whole of France and 217 Mbit/s in dense zone. SFR arrives second on flows with 84 Mbit/s on average on the territory and 163 Mbit/s in dense areas. Follow Bouygues Telecom with 84 Mbit/s and 167 Mbit/s and free with 64 Mbit/s on average, in dense zone as at the national level.

Voices, SMS and transport

ARCEP also notes vocal quality in 2022. Operators obtain very close results in terms of average call for calls. Same observation in terms of call rate maintained for two minutes and without audible disturbances. All operators are above 90 %, with the exception of Free which displays a score of 87 % to this test. Regarding SMS, it takes less than 10 seconds to all operators to receive them.

The flow rate flows have been measured. Important figures to find out which operator will be the most reliable according to your means of travel. On road axes, 95 % of web pages are displayed in less than 10 seconds, whatever the operator. The same cannot be said in TGV, intercités and ter where this figure falls to 81 %. RER and Transilians are doing better (90 %), but remain behind the metros (95 %).

Orange stands out from competition on long -distance ferred axes With 88 % of web pages displayed in less than 10 seconds in TGV. Follow Free Mobile (80 %), Bouygues Telecom (79 %) and SFR (78 %). The trend is the same for calls in trains and on the roads. We invite you to consult the full study of ARCEP in source to obtain even more details.
