Prepaid Data SIM Card Wiki


Three physical mobile network operators are serving Luxembourg:

  • Post Telecom (formerly LUXGSM, state-owned)
  • Tango (owned by Proximus, the Belgian state-owned incumbent telecom operator)
  • Orange (formerly VOXmobile, owned by Orange Belgium, part of the French Orange Group)

and the only viable MVNO in the country called Join was discontinued in 2020.

2G/GSM is on 900 and 1800 MHz, 3G on 2100 MHz. 4G/LTE has started in 2012 on 1800 MHz (B3) to be followed on 800 MHz (B20) and 2600 MHz (B7) on all operators and covers all of the country now. 5G has started in 2021 on n28 (700 MHz) and n78 (3500 MHz).


In 2015 Luxembourg stopped selling anonymous prepaid SIM cards by law because of security concerns. Now you need to show your ID card or passport to be registered at the point of purchase.

Banana SIM (by Join) discontinued[]

Join was a MVNO using Post Telecom's network in 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE with a prepaid line called "Banana SIM by Join".

In 2020 Join Experience has confirmed that it exited the country’s mobile market on 31 May 2020, following the completion of its operational merger with host network provider Post Telecom. As a result of the move, ‘thousands of subscribers’ were transferred from Join to Post. The virtual operator, which launched back in January 2014, has been a wholly owned Post Luxembourg subsidiary since 2018.

Existing customers have grandfathering and can user their SIM cards as usual. No new subscribers are allowed anymore and all customers are shifted to Post.
