What should you look for when choosing your mobile plan? Beyond the price, here are some criteria and tips to consider in order to choose the most attractive offer.

When the time comes to subscribe to a new mobile plan, how can you be sure to make the right choice? It is not easy to identify the most interesting offers on the market. Here are some tips to help you make the right choice.

Evaluate your data needs

There are two popular kind of mobile offers. Each one meets specific needs.

On the one hand, there are flat-rate plans which include a determined volume of call minutes, SMS and a quantity of data to be consumed during the month. Currently, the most popular offers on the market include between 15 and 20 GB of data. These plans allow you to fully use your smartphone for very attractive prices.

On the other hand, many "unlimited" packages appeared in recent years. These meet your new uses: they allow you to listen to music or watch films and series in streaming, to make video calls and to take advantage of social networks without risking a high bill due to an overrun of the plan.

Be aware of the content of the offers

Your choice will generally be based on the price. For a few years now, competition has been at the forefront between operators. This is of direct benefit to users.

However, if the price is an essential factor it is not the only criterion to consider. In order to choose the right package, you should also look at the content of the offer.

What should you look for?

  • Does the mobile plan work abroad? For some offers, unlimited usage applies only on the Luxembourg territory. Others include unlimited usage throughout Europe and sometimes even in the United States. Luxembourg being a small country, you can quickly find yourself out of its borders. So make sure you can take full advantage of your plan at home, at work, on the road or while traveling.

  • Is the offer really unlimited? Behind the concept of "unlimited" plans, there are hided realities. In some offers, the unlimited consumption only applies to the use of well-defined applications. For others, it concerns all the data, whatever the applications used.

  • What is the duration of the commitment? As said, market prices are constantly evolving. In order to take advantage of the proposed reductions it is interesting to choose a plan without commitment so you are able to change when you want.

  • Are there any advantages to bundle your plans? By combining your fiber and mobile plans, you can take advantage of even better prices. In most cases, it is worthwhile to bundle all your telecom plans with the same operator.

Take into account the Fair Usage Policy

Another key element to consider is the Fair Usage Policy (FUP) defined by each operator. This measure aims to ensure that the network can be used fairly by everyone. It induces a reduction of the flow once a certain amount of data is consumed. If you don't want to see your mobile connection speed decrease on the tenth day of the month, make sure the FUP doesn't apply too quickly.
