After the launch of the Livebox 6 by Orange at the beginning of the month, it is Bouygues Telecom’s turn to officially offer its Bbox Fiber WiFi 6E. As its name suggests, this modem is compatible with the latest generation Wi-Fi standard for an optimal wireless connection. Wi-Fi 6E is an important evolution of Wi-Fi 6, since it uses a new frequency band, that of 6 GHz, for much higher speeds at short range.

The Bbox Fiber WiFi 6E is included in the Bbox ultym and Bbox ultym Smart TV subscriptions (the formula without a TV decoder but with a Samsung television). On the occasion of this launch, Bouygues Telecom made other improvements to its offers, but also price increases.

The Bbox ultym subscription now costs €29.99/month for one year, then €49.99/month. Previously, it cost €28.99/month the first year and then €46.99/month. The operator has improved the upload speed, which goes from 600 to 900 Mbit/s. The rest does not change: 2 Gbit/s in downloadup to two Wi-Fi repeaters included and Bbox 4K HDR decoder.

The prices of fixed Bouygues Telecom offers have risen significantly in recent years. Its competitors are also driving up the bill – just look at the Livebox Max offer at €54.99/month – but the increase is particularly noticeable with this operator who had been aggressive on the rate plan in the mid-2010s to catch up. In 2017, for example, you could have an offer triple play (internet + telephone + TV) for €27.99/month with Bbox Miami. Today the triple play costs at least €39.99/month at Bouygues Telecom.
