Freebox Mini 4K: The test and our opinion

Since November 3, 2022, the Freebox Mini 4K Internet offer is no longer marketed by Free. Our opinion on the Freebox Mini 4K package is nevertheless available below for information.

The results of our Freebox Mini 4K test

Good points

  • Its small price the first year
  • The Ultra HD 4K TV decoder
  • Its rather efficient flow

Negative points

  • His aging material
  • Its basic TV bouquet

The Freebox Mini 4K is one of the emblematic offers of the operator Free. Even if its price is small, the Freebox Mini 4K has everything of a big ! Wi-fi, flow, telephony or television… Decryption and test of the Freebox Mini 4K.

�� Freebox mini 4K flow: can do better !

Who says entry-level box also means a slightly less efficient flow than a premium box … But what about the flow of the Freebox Mini 4K 4K ? Decryption of different Internet technologies of this free box.

The Freebox Mini 4K in optical fiber

Even if the Freebox Mini 4K is not the slowest internet boxes on the market, its fiber optic flow is one of the least quick of Internet Free subscriptions, tied with the Freebox Revolution.

With a speed down up to 1 GB/s and a rate rising up to 600 Mb/s, the Freebox Mini 4K promises a rather reasonable fiber flow. An ideal connection speed for families wishing to take advantage of multi-uses, but which can quickly be slowed down by too much stresses. It is sure that compared to the Freebox Pop or the Freebox Delta, the Freebox Mini 4K is less dreaming in terms of flow. But for its ultra reasonable price, difficult to do better !

If we compare the Freebox Mini 4K to other boxes of the same price range, this is one of those that offers the best speed on this price segment.

The Freebox Mini 4K is obviously compatible with ADSL. Even if this technology is led to disappear definitively in the years to come, many French people have only access to this technology yet. The Freebox Mini 4K allows you to reach up to 20 Mb/s in ADSL and up to 95 Mb/s in VDSL2 for the shortest lines (less than 1 km).

The Freebox Mini 4K is satisfied with basic Wi-Fi

As we can imagine in view of the price of the Freebox Mini 4K, no Wi-Fi 6 on the program of this free offer ! We will therefore have to be satisfied with Wi-Fi 5, which is rather efficient, even if it is not the latest Wi-Fi standard.

Another small defect to deplore: the absence of a Wi-Fi repeater included in the offer. If the Freebox Mini 4K subscribers wish one to extend the Wi-Fi coverage of their accommodation, you will have to go to the Free store and get the Pop Wi-Fi repeater, which is sold at a price of 20 € purchase.

The Freebox Mini 4K seduces you but you don’t know if you are eligible for free fiber ? The best way to know it is to carry out an eligibility test.

�� TV: 4K quality with an Android TV decoder

Entrance box requires, the Freebox Mini 4K has the minimum of TV and TV channels services. Inventory of TV features of the Freebox Mini 4K. Like most free internet boxes, the Freebox Mini 4K has a lot of TV channels. Indeed, for an entry -level box, the TV bouquet of the Freebox Mini 4K is rather well supplied: 220 TV channels, including 100 HD channels, just that. Game One, NRJ Hits, Fashion TV or Automoto, all these channels are available thanks to Freebox TV, the platform designed by the operator.

Beautiful features with the mini 4K decoder

The mini 4K decoder has several features that facilitate user TV experience. Be careful, however, some features such as recording a program require the purchase of a hard drive, as the Freebox Mini 4K is devoid of it. Here are the features available on the Freebox Mini 4K:

  • Direct control
  • Program recording
  • The replay

What we also like about the Freebox Mini 4K is access to the Google Play Store that allows you to download all of its favorite applications such as YouTube, Netflix or Prime Video.

L

Streaming services. Optional billed

We can only deplore the absence of streaming platforms included. For good reason, in the Freebox Mini 4K, no Netflix, Amazon Video Prime or Disney+ included. If you want to access these platforms, you will have to take out an account directly via your freebox. This may be, in our opinion, one of the main faults of the Freebox Mini 4K, at a time when streaming is an integral part of the French daily.

A black point that we had to emphasize in this opinion Freebox Mini 4K . Because despite its low price the first year, we could have hoped for this free offer at least a year included from Netflix or Disney+.

�� While the application was only accessible on the Freebox Delta, the Freebox Pop and the Freebox Revolution, The Oqee by Free application is now available on the Freebox Mini 4K. The purpose of this application ? Have access to 550 live TV channels and many replay channels on all your devices: smartphones, tablets, Apple TV and TV connected.

�� Consider wherever you want. Except towards mobiles in France

Like his comrades, the Freebox Mini 4K includes calls to fixed on more than 110 destinations such as Alaska, Brazil, India or Malaysia.

On the mobile side, it will take on 17 destinations such as Cambodia, Hawaii, Hong Kong or Puerto Rico. only ! Because by looking more closely at the details of the mini 4K offer, we notice that calls to mobiles in France are not included. So be careful if you subscribe to this offer !

Failing to have unlimited calls to mobiles in France, it is possible to have a much cheaper mobile package. This is one of the strengths of the Freebox Mini 4K. With the Freebox Mini 4K, subscribers have a huge advantage: the € 2 package usually comes up to 0 €. Also, for only € 15.99/month (instead of € 19.99/month), Freebox Mini 4K customers are thus encouraged to choose the operator’s “all unlimited” mobile package (calls and SMS/MMS unlimited , but above all unlimited Internet on the 4G/5G network of Free).

�� Freebox mini 4K: looking for the hard drive

Now let’s go to the Freebox Mini 4K test on the equipment provided with the subscription. Released in March 2015, the Freebox Mini 4K marks above all by its ultra compact design: this is one of the offers with the smallest equipment of all the decoders and internet box !

The Freebox Mini 4K Modem Server

Let’s talk about the modem first. The Server Mini 4K can adapt to all environments thanks to its small size. One can imagine that because of its small size, the mini 4K box consumes less electricity.

Same remarks for the mini 4K player, otherwise called the TV mini 4K decoder. Its dimensions are dizzying by their so small size: 11 x 15 x 3.5 cm only ! Even if its size can have many advantages, such as perfect integration into any environment, it also involves reduced connectors. The TV Mini 4K decoder has fewer sockets than his comrades.

The TV decoder Player Mini 4K

We Also deplores on the Player Mini 4K the absence of a hard drive, which prevents programs registration. This feature will only be used if the subscriber branches an external hard drive or inserts an SD card in the TV mini 4K decoder. An additional expense to take into account and perhaps a constraint for people who are used to registering their programs regularly.

You want our opinion on the mini 4K boxes and decoder ? Despite regular updates for upgrading the TV decoder, the equipment is nonetheless aging and sometimes experiences certain difficulties to follow the rate.

�� What you need to know before subscribing the Freebox Mini 4K

These are the lines that are written in very small and that we do not always notice: additional costs when you subscribe to an internet subscription. Commissioning costs, termination costs, paying TV decoder … We have identified all inevitable expenses for you when we subscribe the Freebox Mini 4K.

  • Setup fees : 49 €
  • Termination Fee : 49 €
  • Refund of the former operator’s termination fees: 100 €

What is the price of the Freebox Mini 4K in fiber or ADSL ?

Our opinion on the Freebox Mini 4K

For an entry -level box, the Freebox Mini 4K defends itself pretty well. For less than 20 €/month indeed, users benefit from a triple play box that holds the road, a decoder compatible with ultra high definition, but which has certain limits. Connection in fiber limited to maximum 1 Gb/s, aging equipment, absence of hard drive in the TV decoder … It is indeed a cheap internet offer. But the big black point in our opinion of this box and which stands out strongly in this opinion Freebox Mini 4K, it is the absence of streaming services included and the few TV features on the decoder. To complete the Freebox Mini 4K review, here are the different notes that we provide to the Freebox Mini 4K on the important criteria of an Internet offer:
