The Principality of Andorra is a landlocked microstate in Southwestern Europe, located in the eastern Pyrenees and bordered by Spain and France. 

Andorra remains one of the most expensive places in Europe to use a mobile phone, both for buying a local SIM card and for roaming with a SIM card from outside Andorra. You should limit your data usage until you reach a different area in France or Spain at much better rates.

EU roaming Edit

No roaming
Be aware that Andorra is not part of the EU, nor the EEA, where from June 2017 new international roaming rules are enforced. So roaming rates are not capped or regulated in Andorra and can be much higher.

European providers treat Andorra very differently: a few charge the same as within the EU zone, but some add a substantial surcharge for consumptions while roaming in Andorra. Better check your EU/EEA provider first before use.

Fortunately these high costs can often be avoided because Spanish or French antennas cover a major part of the country. Therefore, like always in border areas covered by multiple networks, be sure to prevent roaming by making a manual network selection. Down in the valley, 3G reception from Spain or France is not good. So if you stay for longer, you might consider buying a local SIM card.

Andorra Telecom Edit

Andorra Telecom

Andorra Telecom is the only network provider in this small country. The state owned company was formerly called Servei de Telecomunicacions d'Andorra (STA) a.k.a. Som. It has 2G on 900 and 1800 MHz and 3G/UMTS on 2100 MHz like in most of Europe. 4G/LTE is on 1800 MHz and 800 MHz (bands 3 and 20), but not yet open for prepaid.

Their prepaid product is called Mobiland Clic! You can purchase a SIM card from the Andorra Telecom head office at Av. Merixell 112 in Andorra la Vella or its distributors. Mini-SIMs (2FF), micro-SIMs (3FF), and nano-SIMs (4FF) are available.
