Speeds and Coverage[]

  • Cosmote 2G/3G/4G/5G Coverage. 4G/LTE covers at least 80% of the population in 2023. 4G+ can be found in many areas and 3CA (3+7+20) is very common in big cities achieving great speeds (up to 370 Mbps). Both Cosmote's LTE and 5G are the fastest (overall) networks
  • Vodafone 2G/3G/4G/5G Coverage. Currently, Vodafone's coverage is very good.
  • Nova 2G/3G/4G/5G Coverage In many tourist attractions, Nova has done a great job and their 4G speeds are acceptable. They have improved their 4G coverage along with speeds. 4G+ or 2CA is not common in Nova but when it is found, it usually is B3+B20 or B7+B20. Nova claims they have covered Athens with 5G.

Currently, mobile operators in Greece are expanding their 5G footprint. As of May 2023, Cosmote has covered Greece with more than 80% 5G coverage, in major cities like athens, there is more than 90% coverage and Cosmote hopes to exceed 90% coverage in Greece. Currently,

Nova's 5G coverage is unfortunately unknown. when they changed their name from Wind to Nova, any coverage maps have currently been made unavailable,

Vodafone's exact 5G coverage and their goals are unknown.


3G Shutdown

As of August 28th, 2023. All Operators and NVMO's have abolished 3G service, free SIM replacements for those with old SIMs which dont get 4G/LTE are available thruoughyour carrier's stores. Cosmote shut down 3G first, Ffllowed by Nova and now Vodafone.

Meaning you will never be able to use 3G connection in Greece.

VAT charge[]

in Greece, all carriers and NVMO's charge a 10% VAT upon prepaid balance top-up. If you are a Greek citizen, you can abolish this VAT charge by going to the following link: https://mobilefees.gov.gr/

Every Greek citizen aged 15 to 29 is eligable for VAT removal. if you are under the age of 18 and applying for a VAT removal, your parent must enter their ΑΜΚΑ/ΠΑΑΥΠΑ and then enter their child's ΑΜΚΑ/ΠΑΑΥΠΑ. VAT removal can be done on any telephone number, note that you have to confirm your phone number via SMS.


Expiration

All SIM cards from Greek carriers (pre-paid ones) last for 12 months. The 13th month will be the last one before your SIM is rendered useless. However, to maintain any balance left in your account, you need to top-up at least every 2 months, otherwise your balance will be lost. Incoming calls will be blocked after the 2nd month without any top-up.

The least amount that you can top-up with every carrier is €13. No matter the amount of the top-up, the balance will last for 2 months. Exceptions may apply*.

*Some carriers may still let you top up 8 euros exclusively at their stores, Cosmote and VODAFONE do this.

EU flag
Greece is part of the EU, where from 2017 new international roaming rules apply. In most European countries you can now 'roam like at home' at domestic rates rather than at excessive roaming rates.

Note that many neighbouring Balkan countries are excluded. Greek providers have generally implemented the principles without limitations, but block roaming on some plans. For specifics about the new regulation, check the European Union chapter and every provider below.

Cosmote[]

COSMOTE logo 2015

COSMOTE

Cosmote is the national provider with the most subscribers and the best coverage in 2G, 3G, 4G/LTE and 5G. 4G and 5G are given out without surcharge to all customers including prepaid plans. See above for more info regarding frequencies, speed and coverage maps

4G/LTE service activated by default. 5G may need manual activation by sending 5G to 1333. Activation is free of charge.

Note that in most cases, your Cosmote SIM is able to automatically detect if your device is 5G compatible, and will activate 5G for you automatically.

Availability[]

You can buy Cosmote prepaid packages in their official shops (preferred) or from street distributors at (some) metro stations. There is no place to buy the SIM card in the Athens airport, but their ads are hanging almost everywhere. No kiosks, no gadget shops, no distribution point - you will need to buy it in the city. The central office in Athens located near Syntagma Square subway station. Distributors (usually working students) are also often noticed there. Syntagma is the only store where they speak English the most, many GEMRMANOS and COSMOTE stores have no staff that speak English.

You can also buy the SIM cards and connection kits (SIM card + cheap simple mobile phone or USB modem) in their "Germanos" gadget stores (stores locator). Germanos staff tend to speak English and the activation process is very simple and fast. Cosmote offices other than at Syntagma Square are mostly oriented to Greek customers and may require a new customer to execute a very involved bureaucratic process.

You will need your passport or ID card to activate their SIMs. You should also sign the terms and conditions agreement. Some people report successful registration with driver license or student ID card. You can also try asking the distributor to sell the SIM card without showing your ID, but this is illegal according the law.

Cosmote offers 2 different prepaid packages - "Cosmokarta" and "What's Up". Both tariff lines have different combined packages, but the same data-only bundles. You can change between the two plans by texting 'ALPAK' to 1314. The first change is free. All subsequent changes cost €3.

Recharging and account management []

You can top up your account online here using EU PayPal accounts, Visa/MasterCard EU-issued credit cards or now any card registered in the security program 3D Secured / Mastercard SecureCode / Verified by Visa. Minimal recharge amount is €8. A 12% state telecommunication tax is applied to all top-ups. So if you load 8 €, you'll actually get €7.20 net worth. When you recharge online for €30 , you will get €3 bonus. (3 EURO BONUS IS CURRENTLY ONLY OFFERED BY COSMOTE)

The validity period of the connection is 13 months since the initial activation or the latest top up of cash balance. The validity period of cash balance is 2 months (60 days) from the last top up. If 3 months (90) pass without any new top up, barring on incoming and outgoing calls, text messages and Internet usage is automatically activated.

You can also recharge in Cosmote offices and Germanos stores or buy the top-up voucher.

  • To check the account balance, send SMS with 'ΥΡ' to 1314,
  • To check the expiration date, send SMS with 'LIXI' to 1314,

You can also use Cosmote mobile applications (in Greek only, but shows the balance and remaining allowances quite straightforward without any registration):

Cosmokarta[]

Their common prepaid SIM card for talk, text and data is called Cosmokarta. Cosmokarta is mostly chosen by older people, who want to call mostly and not use data. Cosmokarta offers a service where you can select 2 Cosmote numbers and when you call them the charge will only be 2cents/minute. There is an activation fee.

For a list click on Cosmote and Germanos shops here and know how your place and prefecture is written in Greek. You can also obtain a SIM card from specific kiosks and service stations, but this is not preferred.

What's up[]

GR Whatsup

Originally started as their youth line, but is now open to everyone.

When you insert the new SIM card at the first time, it will ask for a PIN code printed on the SIM card plate.

Data feature packages[]

Note, that users report that this data-only SIM can't be used for roaming abroad. It only works in Greece.

EU roaming (except on the Mobile Internet Prepaid data-only offer)[]

Starting in 2017 Cosmote has implemented "roam like at home" principles for roaming all over the EU. Data volumes up to the indicated EU cap can be used without surcharges on their Cosmokarta and What's up offers, except the night package. All use beyond is charged with 0.434c per MB extra. There seems to be no roaming on the Mobile Internet Prepaid data-only offer.

  • You can user VPN internet as the APN name after calling customer support, to enable port forwarding features etc on supported clients

Frog Mobile[]

Frog mobile

Frog Mobile is a subsidiary or sub-brand of Cosmote on their network in 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE. In the beginning, Frog Mobile offered cheaper calling rates than other Cosmote prepaid offerings. Now there is very little difference between the calling rates of all 3 Cosmote prepaid offerings.

There are discounted or free offerings for Frog to Frog messaging and calling. If you know other Frog subscribers, that is a reason to ask for Frog Mobile SIM. Otherwise, main-line Cosmote offerings such as Cosmokarta and What's Up seem to be better supported than Frog.

Availability[]

Their starter called connection pack is sold for €5 in kiosks and other outlets like Cosmote branded stores (for store locator see Cosmote above). It contains €5 credit, but only €0.04 are given out from the start. €1.24 credit are awarded for the next 5 months provided if there is a top-up.

They are really hard to find. Stores usually claim that they don't have Frog SIM cards. They do that in order to make you choose What's UP. You can change your What's UP bundle to Frog by sending 'ALPAK' to 1314

To activate your connection pack, you have to call any number. Once you dial it, you will hear a recorded message welcoming you to Frog mobile saying that your number has been activated.

Top-up vouchers between €8 and €100 are available at their oulets, Germanos and Cosmote stores. Scratch cards exist in values of €13 €15 €20 and €30. To top up, text "ANA<blank><16-digit top-up code>" to 1298. Check credit by sending "YP" to 1298 free of charge. Via the frog app, you can top-up with your debit card (tested with a Revolut card) adding also free data for 30 ays:

  • €13 gives 1.5 GB
  • €15 gives 1.8 GB
  • €18 and €20 give 2.5 GB

As a gift for new subscribers 500 MB are given out for free for 6 months when to top-up €10 or use at least 500 MB. This bonus can't be used for international roaming.

Data rates[]

Default rate is €1.01 per 24 hours day. After 60 MB the speed will be throttled.

If you run out of data and need 2 hours of unlimited internet, you can activate the "Data Me Now" package in the App. This can be done once a month. The following data packages are offered by sending the activation code to 1330, calling 1330 or selecting them in the frog app:

  • 6 GB (EU cap: 2 GB) for 24 hours: €1.50, activation: gigaday
  • Unlimited (EU Cap: 2.5 GB) for 24 hours: €2, activation: unlgbday
  • 6 GB (EU cap: 2 GB) between friday 18:00 and sunday 23:59: €2, activation: gigask

  • Unlimited (EU Cap: 5 GB) between friday 18:00 and sunday 23:59 for 4 weekends: €4.50 , activation: unlweekends (until 10/10/2024)

  • Unlimited (EU cap: 7 GB) for 7 days: €6.50, activation: unlgbweek
  • 4 GB for 30 days: €8.50 , activation: 4GB
  • 6 GB for 25 days: €5.35, activation:17317

Additionally the following combo packages are available of data, domestic calls and calls to frog subscribers:

  • 10 GB (EU Cap: 9.5 GB) data, 200 domestic, 400 frog minutes for 30 days: €8.50, activation:14200
  • 13 GB (EU Cap: 11.5 GB) data, 200 domestic, 400 frog minutes for 30 days: €10.90, activation:13GB
  • 15 GB (EU Cap: 14 GB) data, 500 domestic, 500 frog minutes for 30 days: €10.90, activation:15500

The social media bundles Play Now, Play Now Unlimited, Social Now and Chat Now mentioned under Cosmote can be added for the same price. Depending on the package, activation of multiple packs per month is possible. Overuse is at the default rate.

Additional free data is included in some bundles to call abroad

EU roaming[]

Subscribers to Frog mobile can use all their allowances in the tariffs without surcharges within the EU countries up to the given limit, if restricted. Use beyond the cap will be charged at €0.00192 per MB

Vodafone []

Vodafone

VODAFONE (FORMERLY PANAFON)

Availability[]

The voice, text and data SIM are called Vodafone Prepay or Vodafone CU (reccomended). The connection set for Prepay is 13 EUR. Getting the Vodafone CU set is recommended. But you can change both tariff lines once per month by calling 1266. The change is free regardless of how often you do it.

Top-Ups[]

Recharge vouchers are available for €13, €20 and €30 , and can be obtained from kiosks, service stations and super markets. You can also top-up your account online, with credit card or PayPal. A 10% tax applies. To check your balance, make a free call to 1252, change language, then option 1 from top menu. There doesn't seem to be an SMS or USSD option for checking balance. Vodafone Greece has reduced from 3 to 2 months the grace period in which prepaid users can still make or receive calls, send or receive SMS and use data if they don't top-up.

Vodafone CU[]

Unnamed

These black package prepaid SIMs are sold by street vendors.

Your account and remaining data can be managed via My CU app. However non-Greece Android phones might not be able to install the app, in which case manually download the XAPK from online repositories like APKpure.com and install using XAPK manager app.

Other prepaid plans[]

It's not recommended to get these following plans of prepaid SIM card. Instead CU (see above) is strongly recommended. It's intended for smartphones and can be purchased by an activation call from a Prepay Vodafone card. They have three product lines:

  • Vodafone Καρτοκινητό Prepaid: Base tariff is the daily pack with €2 for 1 GB per day. You can add the passes and data packs from CU too.
  • Vodafone International: This plan has reduced foreign call rates and features a base data pack of 5 GB for 25 days at €8.50. Other packs and passes can be added too (see above). In some cases, Vodafone International may not have activated 4G. To activate 4G, call 1285 and press 0 and then 2. 4G should be activated within 24 hours, and you will receive a message notifying you with the activation. (NOT RECCOMENDED, THIS CAN CONFIDENTLY BE CALLED A TOURIST TRAP AS YOU CAN GET MUCH BETTER DEALS AT CU)

More information[]

Tazamobile []

Taza

Tazamobile is a MVNO on Vodafone network in 2G, 3G and 4G. Be aware that the points of sale to get a SIM card are limited, as you can't obtain a SIM card directly from a Vodafone store.

Availability[]

Mostly the SIMs and top-up vouchers can be purchased at small kiosks that sell magazines and newspapers, found scattered around the city centers. But you can find actual Taza stores: store locator too, but they may be hard to find. There is also now a "Taza Van", which is essentially a moving Tazamobile shop, which you may sometimes see on the streets. With the SIM card you get a welcome bonus of 500 MB and 100 local minutes.

Getting a Tazamobile top-up voucher is not difficult, because regular Vodafone top-up vouchers and e-top up work too on Taza. They give out 500 MB data bonus and 600 on-net minutes for the 1st top-up of the month of €10 or more. Top-up amount is valid for 90 days. Dial 1252 to check your credit and validity.

For validity check Vodafone above. To activate 4G on your device, text '4GNAI' to 1285

Data rates[]

Base rate is the daily rate of €2 per 1 GB per day. To deactivate text 'X' to 19109 and you'll be charged €0.20 per MB instead. To re-enlist text 'A'.

The following package options are available, which can be renewed up to 8 times per month:

Data Time Price Activation
1 GB 24 hours €1 1D to 1252

  • 7 GB, 120 mins to all Greek numbers, 1500 mins and 1500 SMS to all Tazamobile users, 120 international call mns for 30 days: €17. Activation: text 'T2' to 1252.

For social media, messaging and streaming, they have issued video, social and chat passes for €9 per month each.

EU roaming[]

There is generally no international roaming available on Tazamobile SIM cards. So any EU roaming regulations don't apply to them.

More info[]

  • Tethering: on Android phone sharing internet through WiFi hotspots works
  • APN: APN normally given is “internet.vodafone.gr”, but some reports suggest “webonly.vodafone.gr” will allow tethering off a smartphone to multiple devices. An earlier contribution suggested “webcarta.vodafone.gr” does the same thing. In both cases username and password are left empty.

Nova (formerly called WIND )[]

Nova1

new Nova logo

Nova, previously marketed as Wind is the smallest network provider in Greece. See above for more info regarding frequencies, speeds and coverage maps. United Group, which has pay TV and internet operations across southeast Europe, has announced plans to combine its subsidiaries in Greece under the Nova brand.

Q[]

Αρχείο λήψης

Q is a subsidiary of Wind on their 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE network (for coverage see above). Unlike Cosmote and Vodafone, that have outsourced their sub-brands, Q is sold by Wind in most of their stores and integrated into their own product. They give the highest bonuses for top-ups and lowest rates (alongside with Frog) in the country.

Availability[]

Q starter packs are available for free at some kiosks and most Wind branded stores (store locator) with a scratch card for the top-up value.

You need to register and top-up online using an international credit card or PayPal. They give out a 500 MB bonus for the registration every month (not accumulable).

1 GB and 1500 Q mins: for an online top-up by credit card or PayPal or for a top-up more made in a Wind store of €10 or more for the first top-up only per calendar month.

Data feature packages[]

For data, Q offers these packages:

DATA
NAME AMOUNT COST DURATION
Q DATA STAR 4G (ROLLOVER)

200' TO ALL DOMESTIC NETWORKS

€10,60 30 DAYS
Q UNLIMITED DATA NIGHTS UNLIMITED €6,00 30 DAYS. FROM 22:00 (10PM) UNTIL 08:00 (8 AM)

Thus, combining top-up and online bonuses with a data package, very good rates for data can be achieved. Default rate outside packages and bonuses is horrendous €1.20 per each 50 MB per day.

Combo packs []

In 2019 combo packs were introduced with voice to Greece and Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Norway, UK, USA.
