Another app-based smartphone tariff is starting with Freenet Flex and competes with offers such as Freenet Funk or Fraenk. Unlike the competition, Freenet Flex has three tariffs of different dimensions to choose from; You can switch between these on a monthly basis.
The Freenet Flex tariff is implemented by Klarmobil. The Vodafone mobile network is used for this. Neither VoLTE nor WLAN calling can be used with Freenet Flex.
With all three tariffs from Freenet Flex A telephone and SMS flat rate are included in all German networks. There is a one-time connection fee of 10 euros for the setup. The small tariff with 5 GB of unrestricted data volume costs 10 euros per month. A maximum speed of 21.6 Mbit / s for download and 3.6 Mbit / s for upload is available here. If the data volume is used up before the end of the billing month, the speed is reduced to 64 kbit / s.
Unrestricted data volume cannot be rebooked
When booking the medium Freenet Flex tariff, there is a higher speed for mobile Internet use. Then up to 50 Mbit / s are available for download and up to 25 Mbit / s for upload. In the case of throttling, it remains at 64 kbit / s. The medium tariff includes 10 GB of unthrottled data volume at a monthly price of 15 euros. The most expensive Freenet Flex tariff costs 18 euros a month and contains an unthrottled data volume of 18 GB.
With Freenet Flex, there is no possibility of booking unthrottled data volume. It is possible to switch between the three tariffs via the Freenet Flex app, but a tariff change is only possible on a monthly basis and only on the 6th of each month.
