Sim for France


[link to this post]
 
Does anyone have any recommendations for a good 4G prepaid sim for France right now ?
Will be spending a week there, I understand there is excellent 4G coverage in the area from various providers.
I have a good unlocked portable device which would give service to everything - ipad, laptop, mobile phone.
Just looking for any solid info on specific Sims. Don't really want to spend too much on this.

Depending when you are going a UK Sim might be able to roam-free in France. My Vodafone contract Sim starts free roam in Europe on 11th June.

A UK SIM could actually give a better service as I believe they can roam to any network whereas a France bought SIM would only be able to use the mobile provider it was bought from.

Same when europeans come here now - they will get a much better network service as they can roam to any network - whichever is the strongest.

Yes, that is a good point. Maybe I should investigate getting a French SIM for use in the UK!

Whilst somewhat true a UK sim will not work on absolutely every network abroad.

Networks have roaming partners, EE has two partners in France when I last checked (a year ago).
US coverage wise you cannot use version on EE, only AT&T and T mobile.

The problem with that is that you can only be roaming for a certain amount of time (I vaguely think it might be a month but I could be wrong).

Very good point ian72, thanks.
My contract is with Tmobile / EE , but I usually buy Vodafone data sims for my mobile router, that gets better 4G around here.
I'll drop in to both shops locally on the weekend and check them out.

For Three it is 2 months and they "may" suspend the inclusive offering.
