BasicsEdit

Montenegro has three network operators:

  • Telenor
  • Crnogorski Telekom (a.k.a. T-Mobile)
  • m:tel

Telekom and Telenor both have a good coverage in 2G on 900 and 1800 MHz, and on 3G on 2100 MHz. 4G/LTE started with Telekom and Telenor on 800, 1800 and 2600 MHz. m:tel has a lower coverage on 2G and 3G only. The tax of 1€ per month for users of mobile telephony that was in place 2012-14, has been abolished again.

When buying a prepaid package, the customer is obliged to correctly complete a registration form and produce a corresponding identification document for the authorized person at the point of sale. So be prepared to show an ID card or passport and do some paperwork.
