Still lagging behind on the availability of 5G offers in its range of packages, Sosh could quickly correct the situation in the days or weeks to come.
It’s a big week that is coming to an end for the operator Orange which, after having launched its new Livebox Max offer in addition to the arrival of the Livebox 6, has also just announced the arrival of 5G at Sosh, its mobile plan offer low-cost.
It was during an interview on BFM Business, and through the CEO of Orange Fabienne Dulac that we learned the news:
We will have 5G tomorrow on Sosh offers […] All of our ranges will be accessible in 5G.
Even if for the moment no date has been given, we imagine that the operator is looking for the right launch window to match the positioning of its low-cost offer to market demands. In this same interview, Fabienne Dulac explains the choice to keep 5G offers for Orange customers through the investments made by Orange, by “Uimproved throughput and improved quality” while highlighting a strategic choice.
Recall that Sosh is the last operator low-cost not to offer 5G offers, B&You and RED by SFR being already positioned on this market with their own dedicated packages. We can imagine that Sosh will be inspired by this model and will adapt the prices slightly upwards when 5G is available.
Rapid deployment of Orange’s 5G network in 2022
This Interview with BFM Business tells us other data concerning the deployment of 5G by Orange in France. We learn, for example, that 43% of the metropolitan population is now covered by Orange 5G antennas, mainly in and around large cities if we stick to Arcep data. We also learn that 80% of terminals currently sold on the market are 5G compatible and that 2022 will mark the increase in subscriptions to this type of package.
