    Good surprise for new Free subscribers who have chosen the Freebox Mini 4K. A new version of the box has recently been sent to customers, swapping Wi-Fi 4 for Wi-Fi 5.

    Without warning, Free has updated its Freebox Mini 4K. The changes are to be found not on the “player” side, but on the “server” side: the integrated Wi-Fi card is evolving and becoming faster. Thus, instead of the Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) module that has been fitted to the box since its launch in 2015, there is now a card stamped Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac).

    This allows the Freebox Mini 4K to manage Mu-MIMO stream aggregations and the 2,4 and 5 GHz frequency bands, and therefore to offer much higher speeds. The technical sheet of this Freebox has also been modified accordingly. While its description mentioned Wi-Fi up to 450 Mbit / s previously, the box is now theoretically capable of reaching wireless transfer speeds of around 1,7 Gbit / s.



    A priori, Free started sending these Freebox Mini 4K in Wi-Fi 5 during the month of January. Only new subscribers benefit from it for the moment (or customers who change their box following an exchange managed by the after-sales service). We do not yet know if Free will set up a particular program for subscribers who would like to request a change of box.

    The Freebox Mini 4K is still offered at the price of €14,99/month for one year (with a one-year commitment), whether in xDSL or 1 Gbit/s fiber optic.
