Default Unbundled services possible? home internet, home tel, TV, and mobile phone service

I have spent some time looking at the various telco and ISP sites (Orange, Bouygues, Dartybox) and cannot seem to find a package that offers ONLY home internet service and mobile phone service. I do not want or need a telephone landline or any TV service. I DO want high speed internet with no download caps / limits and mobile phone service (data packages) for two people in my family.

Can someone tell me if they have seen a home internet + mobile phone service, and if yes, where?

Try the mobile phone vendors - like SFR or Virgin Mobile. (I see you've already checked Bouygues - and I'm surprised they didn't offer something like what you're looking for.)

You may not be able to find a "bundle" for Internet + mobile, but you can most certainly get the respective services separately. Or try Free for Internet and then get your mobile phone from SFR, Orange, Bouygues or Virgin. (There are others, too.)

As long as you've got your telephone landline service, what you're probably looking for is an ADSL Internet connection. These days they tend to do those through their "boxes" so they push the whole box package.
Cheers,
Bev

When I was researching Internet services, I found that SFR and the other large companies offer it via via USB Aircard. Its advantage is that you can use it anywhere in the country since you're carrying it with you - it works via the data portion of the wireless telephone band.

I've used this type of access in the US - works fine most of the time and it's not quite as fast as cable or DSL. I ***assume*** that speeds are similar in France but can't state with certainty. And watch for caps on maximum usage. .
