Great thread idea.
In my limited experience there are a lot of French or at least French speaking people here and on other popular forums.

So yeah, I'm looking at buying a smartphone, and would also like to not increase my bill by an unreasonable amount.
For now I'm Orange Open Up 2h 100Mo (TV Box, Unlimited Internet Phone, 1gbits/s Fiber, 2h and 10 mo mobile) for 47.99 /month

If I want the same with unlimited mobile I have to shell out 71.99 /month, which seem more than a little unreasonable.

Yeah 72€ is little much! I pay like 29€ at Free now for 1gb fibre and cell with unlimited call and texts and unlimited 4G. The fibre is under cheapher intro price for one year and later it will be I think 30€. It includes TV and landline too but I don't use them.

For the cell plan have you Li Kao considered just going with different provider?

I'm even considering changing the whole provider. Every option are on the table. I'm tired of paying through the nose, and while I really would like unlimited everything, I don't use my phone near often enough to justify such a bill.

Edit - Damn, yeah, Free is 15 + 15 basically.

The thing with Free, I'm in Paris and here it works great, not sure how their coverage is around France. Check and see if you find some reviews that bring up how they work where you live.

I would vouch for Free as well. It is cheap, especially for mobile phones.

That being said, I only have a basic mobile phone and I don't use it much, so I am happy with paying 2€/month for it (unlimited texts + 2 hours of call).

For optical fiber, I use their Freebox 4k, which I pay 30€/month for. The price has increased for new subscribers a few years ago, so it is 35€/month now.

Un "thread" français sans personnes qui parlent français. C'est un peu surprenant.
Allez, vous magnificent Medames et Messieurs, Utilisez votre beau mais compliqué Langue 🇫🇷.

Or don't, but I'd like the practices. 😝

First option !
That is, if you are talking about the neighborhood named Belleville.

What are you talking about ? Cheese has a strong taste and make you feel like you just hate a dead animal. That's a good cheese :so-good-blob:

Yes I realize my choices are very tame, but thats because those are the ones I usually get and havent tried any fancy, smelly cheeses! But yeah I do love cheese that has alot of taste!

So recommend me some!:D

Obligatory :blobdrool:


FYI this was 'inspired' by a real cheese from my région, the 'Pétafine'.
Every rests of old cheese, liquor, garlic. I would advise caution :sweaty-blob:
That being said the one you (rarely) find in supermarket is shite.


Unfortunately, I didn't find a subtitled version, but here's the liquor scene.

Watching the first video I was getting really hungry! Then it came to the bit "je suis vegetarien" haha, yeah as a vegetarian myself.
