We’ve just upgraded our Orange equipment from a Livebox 2 to a Livebox 4.
Apparently you can do this for free.
But as it happens we also upgraded our package to get free phone calls to a greater selection of countries (110 vs 100) and includes all French mobiles. This cost us the princely sum of 1€ per month.
The biggest bonus has been an increase in the speed of our Internet connection of more than 50%. We are at the end of a country lane some kilometres from the nearest concentrator. Previously we were only able, on a good day, to get 4Mb/s download speed.
We now get in excess of 6 Mb/s and upto 7 Mb/s. In plain English our Internet is a lot faster.
