An assumed delay of the eSIM free mobile esim
When the Freebox Pop was launched in July, Xavier Niel raised the issue of eSIM. Asked about 01TV , the founder of Free and historic leader of the Iliad group hoped for an eSIM launch before the end of the summer.
However, Xavier Niel had confided that he was not originally a big fan of the eSIM for Free. “ It was a business choice on our part not to deploy. […] What worried us was being dependent on a terminal vendor and that our consumer himself would become dependent on a terminal vendor. terminal. […] At one point, this terminal vendor tells us give me a percentage of your turnover, and in the end the price goes up. ”
Xavier Niel had however stressed that the contracts of the equipment manufacturers and financial conditions have changed. Obviously, there is no longer an obstacle for the deployment of eSIM by Free.
