Basics Edit

Denmark has 4 physical network operators:

  • TDC
  • Telenor (network sharing with Telia)
  • Telia (network sharing with Telenor)
  • 3 (= Tre) (on 3G and 4G only)

and about 50 MVNOs operating of these networks.

2G/GSM is on 900 and 1800 Mhz, 3G/UMTS on 2100 Mhz and 4G/LTE has been started on the 800, 1800 and 2600 Mhz frequencies on all networks like in most of Europe.

CoverageEdit

All networks have nationwide 2G coverage, but Tre is a 3G/4G network only with national roaming on TDC for 2G.

Telia and Telenor want to merge their networks into a joint venture which is still pending due to EU regulator's approval. Right now, they have a national network sharing agreement with each other. The combined Telia/Telenor networks cover 99.9% with 2G and 3G and more than 95% with 4G/LTE.

To check out a certain place, it's best to take a look on the coverage maps: TDC coverage , 3 Coverage, Telia Coverage = Telenor coverage.

AvailabilityEdit

While 3-4 networks and over 50 operators sound a lot of competition, prepaid offers are rare, as most of the providers are geared to contract customers. Tre for example stopped all prepaid activities and sells only contracts which require a Danish personal security number. So unlike other countries, it's no use to go to a 3 shop anymore for a Danish prepaid card. TDC only sells voice SIMs with unfavorable data rates. Many MVNOs still offer prepaid, but have no offline outlets to buy or top up. So the choice is rather limited.

Telenor Edit

Telenor

Telenor has a network sharing agreement with Telia in Denmark and thus one of the best coverages in the country. While they focus on contracts, they still offer prepaid cards called Taletidskort with a very interesting flat rate for data, but not open to 4G/LTE.

Availability Edit

Their Taletidskort is sold online to be sent to a Danish postal address. Offline you can purchase it as Startkit in their stores (locator) or more than 3000 outlets within the country. Price is 99 DKK including 29 DKK credit valid for 12 months.

Top-up vouchers are available there or online for a big discount. You will get two PIN codes: one 8 digits from the card and another 6 digits scratched off. To top up, dial 80 333 444, select menu 2 and enter both PIN codes followed by #.

Default data rate Edit

Telenor has only a flat rate for data on their Taletidskort: 99 øre (that's 0.99 DKK) per MB. This is up to maximum of 10 DKK. Data don't stops at 10 MB, but all data usage for the rest of the day is free, but speed may be reduced. No other packages for data are offered on prepaid.
