Poland have 6 GSM-based network providers:

  • Orange (formerly IDEA)
  • Play (by P4)
  • Plus (by Polkomtel, with Aero2 and Sferia)
  • T-Mobile (formerly ERA)
  • Aero2 (with Plus and Sferia)
  • Sferia (with Aero2 and Plus)

The last operator Nordisk is on GSM-incompatible CDMA 420-MHz reaching 95% of the Polish population with up to 3.1 Mbps speed. This band is not compatible with usual CDMA-phones either and only works with devices specifically designed for CDMA 420.

Also, more and more MVNOs and subsidiaries of the operators are arriving on the scene competing with four major operators and reselling their networks. The first 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 for the consumer, but to congestion and slow speeds at times too.

Sferia sells own offer only online. Sferia's offer has been called Normadic (=mobile number with landline number).

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, 900, 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.

There is also a map of all base stations by all carriers in Poland together with the frequency they are transmitting at (change data source on UKE). If you know where you will be located, you can check this map and see which carriers have base stations closest to you. What coverage is concerned T-Mobile and Orange are best sharing 10-11,000 transmitters in the country, followed by Plus and Aero2 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, 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.

EU roaming: No roam like at home? Edit

EU flag
Poland is part of the EU, where from June 2017 new international roaming rules are enforced based on the 'roam like at home' principle. For specifics about the new regulation check European Union chapter and every provider below.

Note, that because of very low domestic rates Polish operators need to give out only a very small margin of their plan at domestic rates and keep on charging EU roaming with 0.02-0.21 PLN per MB for the rest. It's up to you, if you may still call this policy 'roam like at home'.

Most Polish providers restrict their domestic package allowance for EU roaming according to FUP rules. So per 20 PLN retail price of the package a max. of roughly 1 GB can be used at domestic rates. The rest of the domestic allowance and all top-up bonuses can't be used outside of Poland. If you need more or use the standard rate for roaming, a surcharge of 0.02-0.21 PLN per MB is applied. Specific rules and allowances differ. So check every provider for details below. Generally, in spite of very low domestic prices, Polish EU roaming rates are not cheaper than in neighbouring countries and it doesn't make sense to import a Polish SIM card for roaming anywhere else.

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 99.06% of population in 2016 and speeds up to 225 Mbps. 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.

As a promotion Orange offer credits of PLN 100 to every customer who buys a starter, and then registers and activates it by the end of 2017. The credit can be used for national calls to fixed and mobile, within 30 days.

More infoEdit

  • APN: internet



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 2017.

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". Real LTE is called according to Play "4G LTE " and it's operating on 800, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz (Maximal speed: 70 Mb/s for download, 20 Mb/s for Upload). 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.). "4G LTE Ultra" is an area that on LTE Advanced is available (maximal speed: 262 Mb/s). Their own coverage remains 8-20% lower than the other providers.

Play has only around 5,000 of its own antennas in the country, far less then the other 3 major operators. Play customers using most tariffs are allowed ro roam for free on other Polish networks in places without own coverage. In 2018 there is 2G and 3G roaming on T-Mobile and Plus, and 4G/LTE on Orange only. Roaming speed stays always limited to 3 Mbit/s for downloads and 1 Mbit/s for uploads. Be aware that the cheap Internet na Kartę tariff remains excluded from all domestic roaming and stays on Play's more limited own network only.

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 out-of-date English description of some prepaid plans as well as instructions for choosing a plan, but lacks essential infos about the Internet na kartę offer or how to terminate a package, which is only available in Polish (description in Polish can also be very confusing).

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, Ruch kiosks and postal offices (see map).

In this promotion, the cost of a 12 GB package is reduced to 25 PLN per SIM (for data-only SIM card the cost of a 60 GB package is reduced to 25 PLN). You can create a duet with a voice&data or a data-only SIM by texting the phone number of the second SIM from your first line to 80012. The second line will get a SMS which needs to be confirmed by replying the word 'TAK'. One of these numbers must have stayed for at least 15 days with Plus before.   

EU roaming surcharge Edit

Plus in Poland applies a surcharge of 0.03 PLN per MB according to this list for EU roaming if you have a domestic package and 0.09 PLN/MB if not.

Additionally, they started a ongoing promotion called Promocja europejska dla Abonentów Prepaid in which they grant a certain share of the included data volume of packages to be used without surcharges at domestic rates under FUP rules. About 1 GB are given out per 15 PLN retail price of the domestic package. You can check your exact FUP allowance by typing *121#. For 2018 they have lowered the rates. So this promotion seems to be ongoing, even if they have a permission of the regulator to opt out.

You can still buy these roaming packages to EU/EEA, Switzerland and USA (on both T-Mobile US and AT&T):
