Following the entrance of Free SAS into subscriber mobile telecommunications in France in 2012, several other low-cost engagement-free mobile telecommunications subscription plans were launched in France, usually offering connection speeds of at least 3G specification. This development in the mobile telecommunications industry in France has offered consumers more flexibility and is indirectly reducing the replacement cycle for smartphones as giving consumers the freedom to port their numbers from one mobile telecommunications operator to another has given them the freedom to switch to the latest mobile phones, which accounted for a significant proportion of the demand for mobile phones in France during 2014. In addition, the growing proportion of the French population who wish to be available to contact and connected to the internet at all times has also led to the almost feverish adoption of smartphones in the country, which has led to a major switch away from feature phones. The advent of high-quality and advanced smartphones at low-cost has also sustained demand for mobile phones in France in recent years.
