Basics Edit

The following 3 operators are serving Luxembourg:

  • Post Telecom (formerly LUXGSM)
  • Tango (owned by Belgacom)
  • Orange (formerly VOXmobile, owned 100% by Mobistar, so part of Orange Intl.)

and the only viable MVNO in the country called Join.

2G/GSM is on 900 and 1800 MHz, 3G on 2100 MHz. 4G/LTE has started in 2012 on 1800 MHz on all three networks and covers most of the country now. Being in a relatively small country, be sure to switch off data roaming or select the network manually.

In 2015 Luxembourg stopped selling anonymous prepaid SIM cards by law because of security concerns. From now on, be prepared to show your ID or passport and be registered at the point of purchase.
