In Poland 4 network providers are operating:

  • Orange (formerly IDEA)
  • Play (by P4)
  • Plus (by Polkomtel)
  • T-Mobile (formerly ERA)

Also, more and more MVNOs and subsidiaries of the operators are arriving on the scene competing with four major operators and reselling their networks. Thus all 4 operators have pretty similar market shares around 25%. Their price battles have led to one of the lowest rates for data in the EU.

Frequencies and coverage Edit

GSM up to EDGE is on 900 and 1800 MHz like all over Europe. 3G/UMTS covers all of the country on 900MHz up to HSPA+ and 2100 MHz up to DC-HSPA+ speed available in most of the country. 4G/LTE has been rolled out on 800, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz frequency and is generally free of charge for prepaid. In 2015 new spectrum on 800 and 2600 MHz was auctioned and in 2016 allocated to the 4 operators.

What coverage is concerned T-Mobile and Orange are best sharing 10-11,000 transmitters in the country, followed by Plus with 7,500 in 2017. Play is in 4th position with only 5,000 antennas, but compensates this lack by roaming agreements with the other 3 providers, that are only available on some tariffs.

Availability Edit

SIM cards can be bought at many places: shops, kiosk, newsagents, petrol stations, tobacconists or the stores of the network operators.

Managing your account online may require Polish language skills, as no English homepage is available. You can try Google Translate for navigating their websites. Nevertheless, the bonus system you have on a Polish SIM can be quite confusing to foreigners.

Currently you can get mini, micro and nano SIMs. Although a nano SIM may be harder to get (but can be cut). Prepaid still has about 50% of the total market in Poland and is called Na kartę. Tethering and VoIP are available without any additional cost on all operators.

Top-ups and validity Edit

All Polish operators decline credit or debits cards from out of the country for top-ups on their website. In Poland you should go to shops and kiosks instead that sell recharges all over starting at 5 PLN. This ban makes it hard to keep a SIM card alive from out of the country as most SIMs need to be topped up once a year not to be suspended. Credit validity varies between providers and often depends on the top-up amount.

Two local Polish top-up sites have proven to accept foreign credit cards without surcharges:

So there should be no need to go to 3rd party sites with high premiums.

Mandatory registration Edit

Up to 2016 you could buy a prepaid SIM card in Poland without registration at every street corner like chewing gum. This has changed since July 2016 because of a new anti-terrorism act. Registration is now taking place mostly in the stores and sales outlets of the providers. There, you are required to register by showing your national ID card or a foreign passport and adding the SIM card number. The operators are giving out high bonuses for registration. SIM cards for minors below 13 years of age now need the consent of a parent. Registration is swift and straightforward. It only takes a minute and about 10-30 minutes to activate your SIM card.

It's not possible anymore to buy a prepaid starter set without showing your ID. Take care, that some places like kiosks still sell them, but you can't register there. But without registration, you SIM card won't be activated. That's why it's recommended to go directly to an operator's store instead located in towns and shopping centers.

Furthermore, 2000 kiosks of the Ruch chain (locator) and many post offices sell and register SIM cards of all 4 providers and most MVNOs. For all operators maps of registration points are linked. More than 50 million prepaid SIMs in Poland are registered in Poland in 2016/7 and the first blocking could take place as early as 2017. For legal reasons, better stay away from Polish SIM cards sold on the internet on someone else's name.

Orange PolskaEdit

2G and 3G, 4G/LTE (800, 1800, 2600 MHz): Orange Coverage Map good coverage in Poland. LTE is open for prepaid and covers already 96% of population in 2016. Orange is still the market leader in the country with the best coverage and speeds.


As your SIM card needs to be registered to be activated, buy the SIM in an official store or outlet. If you have bought it at other places, check this manual in English how and where to register.

The best way is to buy a Orange Free na kartę starter. This starter pack is sold at 5 PLN with 1 GB included and at 20 PLN with 5 GB included plus the starter price as credit.

If it's not available you can buy any Orange prepaid starter like Yes or Smart plans for 5 or 10 PLN. It contains 1 GB for 10 days plus the start-up credit. Buy it in an Orange store or at a place where they can register it on your name. All Ruch kiosks nationwide can do the registration for Orange.

Later change the plan to Orange Free na Kartę by sending SMS "FREE" to 3033 (for 0.15-0.20 PLN) or by sending code 101*40# (for free) to get the extra bonus for top-up.

Check your balance with *124*#. By texting "START" to free number 8002, package validity will expand to 1 year for 3 PLN.

Recharges Edit

Top-up vouchers are widely available in supermarkets, newsstands, petrol stations, grocery stores. For top-up type: *125*<top-up code>#

Users of Orange Free na Kartę plans only get free data packages for each top-up which is the highest bonus in the country right now:

Top-up Data Bonus Validity
5 PLN 500 MB 2 days
10 PLN 1 GB 5 days
25 or 30 PLN 10 GB 30 days
50 PLN 15 GB 90 days
100 PLN 50 GB 150 days
200 PLN 100 GB 150 days

You can check remaining data from bonus packages using *101*01# code or check bonus volume by sending a SMS with "ILE" to 411 (for 0.20 PLN).

That are extra packages. You can still use money from top-up for making calls, texting, transferring additional data (at 0.01 PLN for 100 kB) or buying additional packages (see below).

Data feature packs Edit

Default rate on Free is 0.10 PLN per MB. Users of all Orange prepaid plans (incl. Orange Free na Kartę plan) can buy following data packages:

Data Validity Cost Activation Check Balance
200 MB 24 hours 2 PLN NET2 ILE2
500 MB 30 days 5 PLN NET5 ILE500
2 GB 30 days 12 PLN NET12 ILE
2 GB + unlimited dom. texts 30 days 15 PLN PAKIET15 ILE15
5 GB + unlimited dom. texts 30 days 25 PLN PAKIET25 ILE25

For activation text code to 260, for data balance check text code to 260.

When data from packages 200 MB and 500 MB is used up, overuse is paid at standard rates (from 0.10 PLN/MB to 5 PLN/MB, depends on plan). When data from packages 2 GB and 5 GB is used up, you can still have connection for free, to the end of validity of package, but with 64 kbps download speed.

EU roaming offer Edit

Orange in Poland offers data roaming packs in all countries of the EU/EEA (excl. Switzerland):

  • 50 MB for 3 days: 3 PLN, activation: *110*73# or text 'INT1' to 553
  • 300 MB for 7 days: 15 PLN, activation: *110*74# or text 'INT2' to 553

You can activate packages multiple times. When you activate next package, megabytes from the both packages are summed up and overall expiration date is set to the expiration date of the last activated package. So it makes sense to activate next package when expiration date of previous package is almost over.

Play, owned by P4, used to be the smallest of the 4 network operators in Poland. But by their aggressive pricing, it moved to 2nd position in 2016/7.

By the end of 2013 it had covered 80% of the population with 3G/UMTS on 900 and 2100 MHz which it misleadingly still calls "4G". But real 4G on 800, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz LTE is available for 92% of the population in 2017: Play Coverage Map (go to Internet. There it shows "4G/LTE" which is UMTS and LTE combined! The bright purple area is 3G/HSPA+, only the dark purple 4G/LTE.)

Play has only around 5,000 of its own network masts in the country, far less then the other 3 operators. Many Play customers are allowed roam for free on all Polish 2G/3G networks, but there is no 4G/LTE on other networks and 3G roaming speed is limited to 3 Mbps. As a result, almost every antenna (for any network) is actually allowing Play customers to connect without surcharges for GSM and for 3G data. But the discounted Play Internet na Kartę plan remains excluded from roaming and stays on Play's more limited own network only. This own coverage is 8-20% lower than the other providers.

Play has one of the most confusing SIM card portfolios in Europe. They have different tariff lines with different add-ons and default rates. Generally, all tariff lines can be switched, but not to/from the cheapest rate called Play Internet na Kartę. Their English website contains an English description of some prepaid plans as well as instructions for choosing a plan, but lacks essential infos about the "Internet na karte" offer or how to terminate a package, which is only available in Polish or here.

Availability Edit

Their SIM card can be bought at kiosks, petrol stations and other points of sale: Play Store Locator. If you want to be sure, that your SIM is registered at the point of sale, go to a branded Play store and show your ID. Registration takes place at all Play stores, Ruck kiosks and postal offices (see map).

Recharge vouchers are available at service stations, supermarkets, and many other places starting 5 PLN up to 150 PLN. To check balance, type *101#.

You can download the Play24 app for iOS and Android to manage your account and check balances.

Play na Kartę Edit

Play na Kartę is their standard prepaid product line sold for 5 PLN in a starter pack. You can change from any tariff to this line by typing *163*6#. Card is valid for 10 days. Default data is high PLN 1.20 / MB.

Top-ups are from 5 PLN valid for 5 days to 100 PLN valid for 150 days. They don't include bonus data. You need to add a data package (see below).

Play na Kartę Lubię to! Edit

This different product line can be used with same starter. This tariff must be activated/changed by *163*7# and card is active for 10 days with 250 MB high-speed data for the start. Default internet is free, unlimited, but capped at slow 32 kbps. To prolong, you have to recharge which gives you included bonus for data. For every top up:

  • of up to 24 PLN, you get 200 MB bonus and 10 days validity
  • of up to 49 PLN, you get 500 MB bonus and 30 days validity
  • of up to 99 PLN, you get 1.5 GB bonus and 100 days validity

This plan caused a revolution in the Polish market when it was introduced in spring 2017. Starter is sold at 5 PLN without allowances. All top-ups stay valid indefinitely as long as one recharge is done per year. You can change to this plan by *163*20#.

Here is the sensation: All packages will also stay valid "forever" until they are used up. You can add bundles for voice and these two data packages:

  • 1 GB forever valid: 5 PLN - activation: *111*842*1#
  • 5 GB forever valid: 25 PLN - activation: *111*843*1#

Check balances by *180#. Packages are more expensive than on other plans, but never expire. Overage fee is low 0.02 PLN per MB. There is a fee of 2 PLN charged in months without any consumption.

Play Internet na Kartę Edit

Remember that users of Play Internet na Kartę have access to Play's own network only - unlike to the other tariffs, there is no national roaming available on this plan (see above). Their product line Play Internet na Kartę has the cheapest data at slightly higher voice and text rates. Default data rate stays at very low 0.02 PLN per MB.

  • 50 PLN: Starter "25 GB" with 3 GB included for 1 month + 11 times 2 GB per month

Default data rate is a very low 0.01 PLN per MB. To add more data, you need to top-up these amounts which translates into data:

30-49 PLN 9 GB 30 days
50-74 PLN 15 GB 60 days
75-99 PLN 30 GB 90 days

Additionally so-called "unlimited internet packages" can be booked on Play Internet na Kartę tariff line only:

  • "unlimited" internet for a day (= 24 hours) FUP = 10 GB: PLN 5, activation: *111*791*1#
  • "unlimited" internet for a week (= 7 days) FUP = 30 GB: PLN 20, activation: *111*789*1#
  • "unlimited" internet for a month (= 30 days) FUP = 100 GB: PLN 49, activation: *111*783*1#

All these "unlimited" add-ons auto-renew and must be stopped by replacing 1 by 2 as last digit in the code. "Unlimited" is limited by a FUP that throttles, if you exceed data to 1 Mbps.
