Launched in September with a new coat of paint, the Freenet mobile phone brand Mega SIM is once again offering low-cost mobile phone tariffs for frequent surfers. The entry is 20 GB of data volume in the LTE network from o2 for 14.99 euros per month. There is also an unlimited tariff for only 19.99 euros per month. All contracts can be terminated on a monthly basis and remain cheap if you conclude them now.
Dieter Bohlen has been the flagship and testimonial of Freenet for over a year now (we reported). So it’s hardly surprising that the former pop titan, in his role as CEO (Chief Entertainment Officer), also advertises the Black Week offers of the recently launched Mega SIM sub-brand – and only finds one typical word for it: “Mega! “
In fact, Mega SIM has two decisive advantages, not to say unique selling points, compared to other mobile phone providers: on the one hand, the (new) contracts can be canceled on a monthly basis, so there is no minimum term, and on the other hand they guarantee “lifetime pricing” – that means in plain language : The price at which you have booked is permanent and will not be increased even after the usual 24 months.
Fortunately, you won’t find any other cost traps, such as subscriptions or additional options, which are often hidden in the small print.
Freenet currently sells four mobile phone tariffs under the brand name Mega SIM, all of which are significantly cheaper during “Black Week”. The company relies on the o2 or Telefónica network. Below we present the offers in more detail and give our personal assessment at the end of the article. By the way, you can take your old phone number with you free of charge.
Green LTE 20 GB (cancellable monthly)
Green LTE 40 GB (cancellable monthly)
Green LTE 120 GB (cancellable monthly)
Free unlimited Smart (cancellable monthly)
The Black Week offers from Mega SIM are really impressive. Although there are always D-Netz tariffs, some of which offer more data volume for even less money, you cannot surf here at a speed of up to 225 Mbit/s. In addition, the contracts usually have a term of 24 months and then become significantly more expensive. With Mega SIM, on the other hand, there are neither long-term contracts nor hidden costs. After the data volume has been used up, however, the provider throttles it down to an extremely slow 32 Kbit/s. With the competitors it is usually at least 64 Kbit/s.
Long-term surfers will find a really cheap tariff with “Free Unlimited Smart” with no volume limit, whereby the data transfer rate here is 10 Mbit/s or only 5 Mbit/s in the upload. Downloading and sending larger files can therefore take a little longer. In any case, you don’t take any risks with any of the Mega SIM tariffs, especially since you can cancel monthly – for example if Telefónica or o2 has insufficient network coverage. The mobile phone provider has caught up significantly in recent years.
