After Orange and Bouygues, it’s Free’s turn to offer Wi-Fi 6E support on its internet cans. In fact, the Internet troublemaker is one of the last French operators to take on the role of Wi-Fi 6E.
Better late than never, as they say. Free finally decided to introduce Wi-Fi 6E In some of his Internet boxes. In France, Bouygues Telecom was the first operator to formalize Wi-Fi 6E at Bbox Ultym. The arrival of this new technology was also followed by an increase in the prices of Bbox Ultym subscriptions.
In the process, Orange introduced the new compatible Livebox 6 Wi-Fi 6E. In fact, it was urgent that Free catch up with the competition. It is now done. The operator led by Xavier Niel just announced on Tuesday, June 7, 2022, the arrival of Wi-Fi 6E in the Freebfox Delta.
As you know, Wi-Fi 6E integrates a new range, that is, the 6 GHz band, for those already in it (2.4 and 5 GHz). The main advantage of this range is that it is not overloaded by all of your connected devices. In fact, Wi-Fi 6E allows you to enjoy better bandwidth, higher speeds, and lower latency. This makes it an ideal benchmark for virtual reality, HD broadcasting, or even online gaming.
Free switch in turn to Wi-Fi 6E
Free, Wi-Fi 6E integration will be first”To improve coverage inside the home by allowing an increasing number of mobile devices and terminals to be connected simultaneously to the same network without speed loss.”
In addition, the operator hopes to be able to guarantee “Better connectivity in high-density areas, as Wi-Fi 6E avoids the effects of congestion by using a new, underused frequency band.” Thanks to the work done by the operator’s R&D teams, Free claims the ability to offer download speeds of up to 2.5 Gbit/s. Or speeds three times faster than Wi-Fi 5.

However, you will have to change your box and pay €49 in operating costs.. The subscription amount remains unchanged, however, at €39.99 per month for the first year.
