Prepaid Data SIM Card Wiki
Flag of Bermuda


Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory in the North Atlantic Ocean. Although usually referred to in the singular, the archipelago consists of 181 islands with a total land area of 53 km2. Eight of the larger islands are populated by around 65,000 inhabitants.

Two operators share the market in Bermuda:

  • One (formerly CellOne, by Bermuda Digital Comm. Ltd.)
  • Digicel Bermuda

One is the incumbent provider. It comes from the former monopoly of Cable & Wireless which was broken by Digicel in 2005. Nevertheless, prices have remained quite high.

2G is on 1900 MHz and 3G on 850 Mhz up to HSPA+ by both carriers. All populated islands are covered and speed is pretty good.

At the end of 2016 the regulator awarded spectrum for 4G/LTE on 700 MHz (bands 13 and 17) to both operators. They started to roll out 4G/LTE in 2017 as they need to cover 99% by the end of the year according to license rules.

Prices are given in Bermudian dollar (symbol: $; code: BMD); also abbreviated BD$; informally called Bermuda dollar. It's linked in ratio 1:1 to the US dollar. Taxes are not charged, but all mobile plans are subject to a 'Government License Fee' which is charged as $ 0.40 per day from all plans.

One (formerly Cellone)[]

One (previously called CellOne) by Bermuda Digital Comm. Ltd. has been sold to local KeyTech that has been acquired by US-based ATN.

They offer triple-play products and were the first to launch 3G and 4G services on the islands. Initially, they started 4G on band 5 (850 MHz) which is added by 700 MHz.

One still holds a lead in market shares on a network that is slightly ahead of Digicel's.

Their network, as a result of recent spectrum auctions, is now somewhat on par with CellOne's network, and claims to cover 99% of the population (coverage map).
